Subject [greenstone-users] fail to start greenstone


Hello everyone,


This must be a problem that you have encountered before, but I could not find any previous emails about this matter in the archive.


I recently downloaded greenstone for preparing to be used in my digital library class in the spring. The version is 2.51, and I installed the local library version. There was no problem in the installation.


However, when I tried to start it by clicking  the “enter library” button of its initial interface, it opened a web browser, but failed to enter the library, and always produced the error message of “cannot find the server, the page cannot be displayed”.


Then it tells me that I should not use any proxy servers in my IE, but I did not. I also have the latest java environment.


I suspect that it must be some simple configuration problem, but I still cannot get hold of it.


Can anybody help me on this matter? Thanks a lot,
