First, a word of caution: Don't copy and run scripts on your firewall from untrusted sources. Or just don't do it at all. It's a firewall, anything added in that way is a security concern.
Now that the disclaimer is out of the way:
The error you see means whatever interpreter it has in the shabang line (#!) at the top of the script does not exist. In that case, it's probably pointing to the wrong path for perl (usually this happens when someone copies a Linux-specific script to FreeBSD…). Edit the file and fix the path to point to the correct interpreter.
That or the file has non-UNIX line terminators
Thanks for explaining,
First: I wouldn't use 3 party scripts if pfSense would have the facility what I am looking for. Basically I am emailing config every hour using crone just for backup purpose in case HDD fail or something else.
Second: Thanks for solution, correcting path to perl fixed the problem. I was in rush last night and my head was not functioning as supposed.
Sending your config via e-mail is highly insecure and a questionable practice. There are much better ways to accomplish regular backups:
But that's a topic for new different thread.
