This can be any number of things from:

-Mispelled filename
- Indirect relative location. Eg, your working folder is not the folder you think it is.
- If it's on another server, the other server may be down.

1. Check to make sure the filename is spelled correctly.
2. Check to make sure the file is where you think it is.

I personally experienced this error because my url was too long.

It worked fine in Firefox, but when I pasted my url into IE's address bar the cgi script complained, and it turned out IE's address bar only accepts 2047characters.

I guess then, using a url > 2047 causes the open() method to fail in this way because IE is fine in all other instances, the way I am using it.
