 It does not work with Lynx for me.

 Once again, what is in your error log?  and access log that differs for
 successes and failures?  It is important you answer questions I ask or
 there is no way we can help.
 
 If you enter http://cgi.epost.co.uk/property/rentprop/rent-prop-srch.cgi
 directly into your browser, does it work from any platform?  
 
 Verify that cgi.epost.co.uk is supposed to be pointing to 193.164.194.2;
 if some systems had different DNS info they could be connecting to a
 completely different machine.  Are you sure there is no difference between
 the machines where it works and it doesn't?  eg. a firewall, different
 network, etc.
 
 This is almost certainly nothing to do with Apache.
