xinetd and get_iplayer.cgi

Has anyone managed to run get_iplayer.cgi via xinet?

I use this perl script to start Web PVR without any problem. But I can't get this working via xinet.

I get the following output on my web browser: "CMD STEDRR: mkdir /plugins: Permissions denied at /home/me/opt/get_iplayer/get_iplayer line 2200."

Any idea how to get this working?

Cheers, Sam




system("/home/me/opt/get_iplayer/get_iplayer.cgi --port=1935 --getiplayer=/home/me/opt/get_iplayer/get_iplayer"); 


cat /etc/xinetd.conf 


port = 1935
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = me
server = /home/me/bin/
wait = no
instances = 1
