normally it would be http://ppp.yyy.com/cgi-bin/cgi-scriptname
however, it depends on your scriptalias setting in the httpd.conf file. 
to access it as above, you would have something like:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/usr/local/www/cgi-bin/"
     <Directory "/usr/local/www/cgi-bin">
         AllowOverride None
         Options None
         Order allow,deny
         Allow from all
