Hi Haik,

For the users you created, did you specify their "group settings"? See
the section "Authentication" on the page
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Remote_Greenstone

If you had already specified what collections your various users will be
allowed to edit, and you still weren't successfully connecting to your
Greenstone server from the client using a user's authentication details,
then try using the Greenstone Administration pages to once more edit the
details of your users. This time, set their group settings to
"all-collections-editor". Once more, use the client-GLI to connect to
your remote Greenstone server under one of those users' accounts.

Finally, if that makes no difference, open up a browser (while your
Greenstone server is still running) and visit
your Greenstone home URL concatenated to:

cmd=get-script-options&script=classinfo.pl&xml=&language=en&listall=&un=Tigran&pw=Tpv50MQPv08Hc&ts=1310118170687


E.g. assuming your server runs on localhost port 8282, you would point
your browser to:

http://localhost:8282/greenstone/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl?cmd=get-script-options&script=classinfo.pl&xml=&language=en&listall=&un=Tigran&pw=Tpv50MQPv08Hc&ts=1310118170687


When you visit the above, are there any clearer and more detailed error
messages this time? If so, can you mail us these?

Thanks,
Anupama
