    Z39 Resource Not Searching

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version:

    Description:
    I'm having a problem getting some of our Chadwyck resources to search in MetaLib.
    They time out using YAZ. What can I try next?

    Documents on British Policy Overseas timed out when trying to connect in YAZ::
    Z> auth YourInstitute/Welcome
    Authentication set to Open (YourInstitute/Welcome)
    Z> open tcp:dbpo.chadwyck.com:210
    Connecting...error = System (lower-layer) error: Connection timed out
    Connection timed out

    Resolution:
    Documents on British Policy Overseas
    [1] confirmed via ProQuest site that z39 is supported for this resource (also, changing configuration to z39 worked for other dbs.)
    [2] confirmed via ProQuest site that hostname:port & db code are correct.
    [3] in Yaz:
    Z> auth YourInstitute/Welcome
    Authentication set to Open (YourInstitute/Welcome)
    Z> open tcp:collections.chadwyck.com:210
    Connecting...OK.
    Sent initrequest.
    Connection accepted by v3 target.
