[Koha] Z39.50 LOC looks to local host?

Hi everyone, we just set up a Koha 3.00.02 server on Ubuntu 9.10 in our
little school library using this tutorial (
http://www.blazingmoon.org/guides/k3-on-u810-1.html) and have it working
pretty well so far. One snag we haven't been able to figure out is using the
cataloging feature with LOC's Z39.50. When we click the "z39.50 Search"
button a pop up window appears that says "Z39.50 Search Points" at the top
and has a few fields to fill out with search terms like "Title:" and "ISBN:"
and a few "Search targets" at the bottom, of which the LOC target is
checked. When we search anything, however, the search fails and we can tell
from the browser pop up window that the browser is looking at the local host
( After a short while a message appears that says: "Connection
failed to z3950.loc.gov"

Can anyone tell us what we need to do or point us to a page that can help us
to connect to z3950.loc.gov?

Thanks in advance, -Corie
