A very basic webservicing - I need to call a CGI

Hello experts!

I want to make use of the webbrowser control in VB5 for some local webpages and a CGI script. I am to open a HTML document, and via a hyperlink execute a piece of CGI. It is only to be on local 127.0.0.1. But how do I work around this. I assume I have to have something set as server kind of behaving, and that it also has to react with a cgi-bin directory.
I can open the HTML, but I can not get the CGI working, so I assume it is the server thing I need to solve.
Again; it only has to be local, it only has to react properly on the CGI. It is for a HTML showcase that make use of a piece of CGI.

Can someone help me with this, a simple webserver solution I assume. Which control am I to use, and how about the codes, the CGI directory specially??

Go to http://www.planet-source-code.com/PlanetSourceCode/ and then go into the VB area and do a search on "web server".  There is source to several webservers there...
