    Pls help to get perl script running

Could anyone tell me, if this still works and how the installation is done? I have a quite new Fritzbox 7490.
    Thanks in advance!
    I also just found this thread and have the same/similar question:
    I got a step further - I could get the script to run (I have no idea about perl though...):
    By copying the script in the home folder on my birdslikewires Joggler (which runs my LMS) and executing "perl sbcm.pl" in that folder via putty.
    The script does run, but gives this error:
    "Sent player count ? to server
    Server replied: <HTML><HEAD><TITLE>405 Method Not Allowed</TITLE></HEAD>"

    So, when I call my home, it is recognized be the scipt - it states:
    "SIP0 - 0176xxxxx is calling
    Argument "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>405 Method Not Allowed</TITLE></HEAD>" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at fbcm.pl line 82, <GEN0> line 1."

    But nothing on the player.

    Can anyone help?
    Or give ideas where to go from here?

    It does work and run well. Nice :-)
    My mistake: I had the wrong port entered in teh script (it does have ot be 9090 - I thought it needs to be 90000...)

    To get to to continue to run after closing putty, do this command to start it:
    "nohup perl fbcm.pl &"

    Hi guys!

    Is this still working?
    I added the FB and LMS ip addresses in the file and uploaded it to /usr/local/slimserver, changed permissions to 774 and tried to start it with "nohup perl fbcm.pl &"
    If so, can anyone please elaborate on how to use this, I have no knowledge of perl scripting.
