Doesn't really sound like a problem related to swish.

Sage advice: If the web server reports an error, read it carefully and
believe it.

Tail the web server error log in one window and run the script from the
browser and watch the log message and think about what it's saying.  If
it's saying 404 not found then you probably don't have the script in the
right location for the web server.

BTW -- I think you once mentioned telneting to your machine.  If you really mean
telnet then switch to using ssh.
