Hi Arthur,

There are updated versions of ISISPlug.pm and gliserver.pl on the
http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~mdewsnip/greenstone/remote-greenstone.html
page that you should download (if you haven't already). Don't forget to
re-do step 3 of the instructions.

If that doesn't fix the problem, my suggestions are:

- Make sure you have re-made the SignedGatherer.jar file after upgrading
to Greenstone v2.71

- In a web browser, visit
http://<your-server>:<port>/gsdl/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl?http://bedrock:8080/gsdl/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl?cmd=run-script&script=pluginfo.pl&un=<username>&pw=<password>&c=<collection>&listall&xml
and make sure you get some intelligent XML as a result

- Open the Java Console in your browser and check for exceptions

- Look in your web server error log for messages related to gliserver.pl

- Try using the client version of the GLI instead of the GLI applet to
build collections remotely. The GLI applet adds another layer of
complexity to the entire process and it would help to know if this extra
layer is the problem.

I'm away for a couple of weeks but will hopefully have time to look into
any problems when I return.

All the best,

Michael
