    When doing a search of the NLM z39.50 target in the Cataloging module, an error message, "User name does not exist", is displayed.

    This has been observed in 2 situations:

    [1] The EXT01 line on the PC's library.ini file did not have the correct pc_server port 6585 (it had 6565). Switching the port to 6585 immediately fixes the problem.

    [2] In SearBase.dat, the base name must be compatible to tab_base.eng.
