    NCIP: How to initiate an http/https connection

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    We are trying to set up NCIP via HTTPS. I understand that this works through the Aleph www_server. But what is the URL or port that the initiator needs to connect to? simply goes to the OPAC. Is there a special URL such as /N that will invoke NCIP, similarly to how the X-server works?

    The correct URL form is something like this:<ncip message>

    So, a full message would start like this:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE NCIPMessage SYSTEM ""><NCIPMessage version=""><AuthenticateUser><InitiationHeader>

    ...and so on.
