Hi Shawn

If you are using a standard release and just following the instructions
in the FAQ, then the applet will work like:

Collections are created on the server, but you can only see those that
you have created. These get partially developed in your home directory -
documents are gathered there, and partially on the server- all the
collection building commands happen there. (on windows, home directory
is C:documents and settingsusernameapplication datagreenstonegli)

Once you have created a collection, you will be able to see it in the
GLI list of collections.
This is not password protected (as far as I know) but no one else can
see or modify your collections in the GLI so it doesn't really matter.

Michael has modified the GLI applet to enable you to open and see any
collection on the server. this uses authentication, users need to have
collection building enabled before they can open a collection.
To use this new functionality, see the instructions at

Cheers,
