I don't think I've made my problem very clear:

I have installed the web server version on one computer (server) and have setup the GLI applet for off-site access. When I try to use the GLI applet to login to the server from any computer, I get the error I described. I just tried now to create a new collection using the GLI applet, and I got a similar error:

An error has occurred on the remote Greenstone server while performing this operation:
Collection <name> does not exist.

Yes, the username on this computer is User1. I cannot find a .col file on the client computer, only on the server computer in the expected location (c:Program FilesGreenstone. . .).

I have an existing collection on the server, and the only thing I want to do is remotely add/edit entries in that collection.

Hi Galvin

Now I have just reread the first sentence, and you are trying to use the
applet version??
If you are using the applet or gli client then it will save locally
parts of the collection in C:Documents and
Settings<username>Application DataGreenstoneGLIcollect.

Try creating a new collection - does this work??
Is your username User1??
Maybe the gli is getting this wrong somehow.
