To understand how the remote GLI works, you can start from reading the
document http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Remote_Greenstone, and
then install Greenstone and a stand along GLI application yourself. You
will get some ideas when trying to connect the GLI to the Greenstone
server remotely.

In Greenstone, importing documents and building collections are all done
by calling Perl scripts. So does the remote GLI. But the remote GLI calls
the Perl scripts through CGI because of in a network envrionment. Studying
the GSDLHOME/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl file will help you understand the
principle of remote communication before starting your implementation.

Yes. Look at the Authentication part of the document for the detail
