The reason is simple. Your webserver does not rewrite the URLs to index.php.

Please check the content of your .htaccess file. In case you do not have 
such a file, there is a simple file shipped with TYPO3 named _.htaccess. You 
can just rename that file to .htaccess and it should work.

If it still does not work, then your webserver is set up to not respect the 
directives in the .htaccess file. Talk to your hoster then.

You can also just disable realurl. This will make TYPO3 stop writing links 
like real paths and it falls back to the default behaviour to generate 
example.com?id=123 links.
