I have a small consultation:

How can I link up two gsdl´s systems, from a single portal in a way
I could look for documents in either by using for example, z39.50,
should the portal be a z39.50 server or client and the gsdl's servers or
clients. I think gsdl-2.50 can be recompile to make it a z39.50 client,
doesn´t it?. How can I search between several gsdl's from a single portal?

Please advise for a best path to do this. What am I looking is to set up
a portal that will link to several gsdl´s systems or even other dl´s systems
that use similar or different architecture but support z39.50.

This question might have been answered before, please provide a location.
If not, I would appreciate an fairly easy to implement response.

Also, has there been any successful work accessing gsdl through a PDA using
PocketPC 2002 or 2003 (Windows Mobile) device, either with or without wifi?
