    Adding new PC: tab_ip_allowed, tab_attr_sub_library, & firewall

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    What do we need to do to add a new GUI pc, with a new ip-address?

    Procedure:
    The pc ip-address is found in two Aleph tables: $alephe_tab/server_ip_allowed and the ADM xxx50/tab/tab_attr_sub_library.lng.

    The "P" lines in server_ip_allowed control pc server access. If you have a line like this:

    P A *.*.*.*

    that means that server_ip_allowed is allowing all ip addresses.

    The xxx50/tab/tab_attr_sub_library.lng says what functions a particular ip address or range of ip addresses is allowed to perform for what sublibraries. The functions are loan/return, transfer, Reading Room, and various cash functions.

    Also, the new ip address *may* need to be added to your firewall "rule" to allow it to access the pc_server port.

    If you are a hosted/RITS/Direct or Total Care site and the ip address is outside the range of ip addresses you have provided Ex Libris, the hosting server firewall may need to be updated.
