Hello,, I'm giving my first steps into Solaris 10
I have a T1000 server here, first one in the company.
There is one developer that wrote some Perl script and wants to run it on my server.
She's asking for this:

"An externally accessible place where I can put Perl & CGI scripts. I'd prefer a Unix account somewhere that I can get to via telnet.
It needs to have
1) access to a Perl interpreter e.g., /usr/local/bin/perl
2) be accessible from the Internet
The first part, I can create an username for her, that she can access from outside using SSH.
I don't know how she can copy her files from her computer (she is remote user and has a VPN connection to my office).
ABout the PERL interpreter, I used the pkginfo command and it gave me this:
root@SunT1000 # pkginfo SUNWperl584core
system      SUNWperl584core Perl 5.8.4 (core)
root@SunT1000 # pkginfo -l SUNWperl584core
   PKGINST:  SUNWperl584core
      NAME:  Perl 5.8.4 (core)
  CATEGORY:  system
      ARCH:  sparc
   VERSION:  11.10.0,REV=2005.
   BASEDIR:  /
    VENDOR:  Sun Microsystems, Inc.
      DESC:  Perl 5.8.4 programming language (core)
    PSTAMP:  on10-patch20050727164038
  INSTDATE:  Jan 04 2006 08:46
   HOTLINE:  Please contact your local service provider
    STATUS:  completely installed
     FILES:      559 installed pathnames
                  18 shared pathnames
                   1 linked files
                 113 directories
                  36 executables
               10080 blocks used (approx)

So I assume PERL is already installed on the server, but I don't know how to give access to her username to the interpreter, and how to test when it already has access to it.

About "accesible from the INternet", the T1000 has an internal IP address, I can do NAT through a Public IP, no problem, but, do I need a web server on that server so her scripts can be ran from outside?
Thanks so much for the help.
