Hi Shawn,

The GLI runs in 3 configurations:

- Local Greenstone and GLI
- Remote Greenstone, local GLI
- Remote Greenstone, GLI applet (runs in a web browser)

The first is the traditional method of using the GLI and is the most
stable. You build collections on your local machine and then copy them
to the server once complete. The GLI does not do the copying for you --
you need to manually copy the folder of your collection (in the local
Greenstone "collect" directory) into the "collect" directory on the server.

The last two methods are fairly new. They allow you to build collections
without having a local copy of Greenstone installed, but are a little
harder to set up and a little less developed. See
http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~mdewsnip/greenstone/west-yorkshire/remote-greenstone.html
for more information.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Michael
