It's not a typo :-)

The last part of the HOSTSVC value is the column-name. Do you have
a "comm" column ? Or should it be "conn" - with an 'n' ? I think so.

It looks like the CGI script fails to pick up the Hobbit environment
setting that defines the IP of the Hobbit server. This is taken from
the BBDISP setting in the hobbitserver.cfg.

Try making the cgierror.log file writable by your webserver user-id,
that should make any errors from the real requests show up in that
