Hello Karl,

Mod-interchange replaces the cgi program and allows Apache to
communicate directly with the Interchange server.  There is currently no
Apache2 version available, for that setup you would need to still run
the vlink or tlink program.  Mod-interchange is still maintained here:

We run mod-interchange on these two sites: www.frozencpu.com and
www.reliablemedical.com, we have found no problems in doing so.  Our
primary reason for using mod_interchange was to remove the
"cgi-bin/catalogname" from the url without using Apache rewrites.
