I need help for my webpage-retrieving Script in PERL

I need help for my webpage-retrieving Script in PERL

I need help for my webpage-retrieving Script in PERL

I need help for my script that should retrieve an ASP-webpage through Perl.
(for example this page: www.test.com/index.asp)

I only retrieve an Error-Webpage that the script or file isn't located on the server.

I used this Script:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use IO::Socket;

$host = "www.12sms.de";;
$EOL = "\015\012";
$BLANK = $EOL x 2;

foreach $document ( "" )

 $remote = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto     => "tcp",
                                  PeerAddr  => $host,
                                  PeerPort  => "http(80)",
 unless ($remote) { die "cannot connect to http daemon on $host" }
 print $remote "GET $document" . $BLANK;
 while ( <$remote> ) { print }
 close $remote;


It would be great if anybody could help me

RE: I need help for my webpage-retrieving Script in PERL

it sounds like it has more to do with the configuration of your web server.  can you run other perl scripts on this server?  if so, is this perl script set to the same permissions and in the same directory as the others?
