Online reservation system disconnected from payment gateway

I'm trying to configure an online reservation system which can accept credit cards while confirming a reservation.  Testing the system, there is a failure at the point when the guest is being transferred to our secure server to enter their credit card details -- an error 404.
If you have a way of determining what is causing this, I'd appreciate it.

To reproduce the issue, visit www.mauitradewinds.com/RezTest/availability.html and follow these steps:

1. Select "New Booking" from the menu.

2. Choose an arrival date, and a departure date at least five nights later than arrival, and click "Book Now!"

3. Fill in the form fields and click "Confirm".   If the system were working, you would see a brief message "Sending booking data" and then you would arrive at a secure website. When I test this, I get an error 404.

It seemed to work fine for me.  

The only suggestion I have is the below fields should not be fillable and should auto calculate based on the room type I choose and the dates I chose.  

Rent per Night      
Number of Nights      
Discount for stays of 7 nights or longer      
Room Total      
Cleaning Fee      
Hotel Tax

Thank you.  Yes, I should have specified that in my original post.  Do you have a way to determine which link or URL is broken when "Confirm" is clicked?

Ok, I see now.  The page is using your script here http://www.mauitradewinds.com/RezTest/cgi-bin/rez60std.pl and somehow you have programed that to end up on a page that does not exist.  The console shows that pl file is there but it must be redirecting to the wrong place.

Where are you programming it to go to?

rez60conf.txtTransMan.txt

Thank you.  I believe it should go to a PERL file called TransMan.pl
The path to TransMan.pl is set in  a file rez60conf.pl, and I may have configured that wrong.
The file is in a folder named scgi, and I am uncertain how to specify the URL for that file.
I've attached TransMan.pl and rez60conf.pl.
The server error log reports:
[Sat Mar 22 12:48:53 2014] [client 76.245.196.197] File does not exist: /srv/m/maui2/mtw/RezTest/cgi-bin, referer: http://www.mauitradewinds.com/RezTest/booking_data.html

That's great!

Think about using BugFinder (top right link) for the process of making a reservation.  I think you can tighten it up a bit and go more streamlined. You can get multiple eyes giving you different points of view.

Good Luck!
