I guess you tried to use an independent Tomcat installed on you machine,
didn't you? Actually, a Tomcat has been embedded into Greenstone3 which is
at GREENSTONE3HOME/packages/tomcat, and customised particularly for
Greenstone3. It has to be used for serving Greenstone3. Please read the
README.txt under the GREENSTONE3HOME folder for details.

Yes, the gliserver.pl file is used for Greenstone2 remote GLI only.
