Z39.50 issues

Cab Vinton
Anyone else having problems grabbing records through Z39.50 in the
past couple of days?

Our FirstSearch, LOC & NYPL destinations all return errors ...

We haven't changed any settings & they still match the settings from
http://irspy.indexdata.com ...

Thanks,

Cab Vinton, Director
Sanbornton Public Library
Sanbornton, NH

It looks like that the Library of Congress may have finally removed
the z39.50.loc.gov:7090/Voyager entry point.  The current list of LC
Z39.50 database is at:

http://www.loc.gov/z3950/lcserver.html

Some searching using the Internet Archive indicated that this page
stopped referring to z3950.loc.gov back in 2010.  The current
connection information appears to be:

Domain name:    lx2.loc.gov    (140.147.249.67)
Port:           210
Database name:  LCDB           (UTF-8 records)

The other settings for LC should remain the same.

Regards,

Galen

NYPL's target doesn't work for me either, and it actually was removed
from the default list of targets installed with Koha back in August
for not working or only working inconsistently.

Galen

Thanks, Galen!

The new LOC db info works fine now.

Will have to look into why our other db's are acting up now ...

Cheers,

Cab

LoC started timing out for us yesterday afternoon, but is now working well
again. NYPL (catnyp) times out 80% of the time in our experience, so we
hardly ever use it.

Indeed, z3950.loc.gov is now responding for me as well.  However,
since LC no longer seems to officially mention z3950.loc.gov, and
since lx2.loc.gov appears to have been working even when z3950.loc.gov
was down, I've opened bug 9494 and submitted a patch to update the
default definition.
