I'm really not sure; I have never tried to use the module from that 
location. All the interchange payment modules (including AuthorizeNet.pm) 
are typically located in VENDROOT/lib/Vend/Payment/. I would not hurt to 
copy the module to that location, restart interchange and try again. I do 
know that the stock perl 5.8.0 that comes with Red Hat dists *will* cause 
problems with most of the payment modules, and needs to be recompiled with 
threading turned off.

No doubt this is just an issue with setup and configuration - myself and 
many others can attest to the fact that the interchange Authorizenet module 
works quite well. Perhaps you need to seek out the assistance of a consultant.
