My os is win2000.  I have perl 5.22 installed in my computer and simple .pl scripts work fine.  When I try to write to a file, it can't open:
unless (open(NAM2, ">>$file")) {
print "File will not open";
}
when I set my server access permissions to write, the perl script will not run.
Are there some other permissions that need to be set?
