[Koha] Creating a Z39.50 Target - No connection

Hi Everyone,

I was interested in making my catalogue searchable by turning its <biblios> database into a z39.50 target. I've followed the instructions in my koha-conf.xml file (etc/koha/sites/library/koha-conf.xml), un-commenting the necessary areas. However, going through the Troubleshooting page on the Koha Wiki: http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Troubleshooting_Koha_as_a_Z39.50_server has led to a dead-end.

I have my port set to 210 (this is different from the 9999 default for biblios), yet I cannot connect to yaz-client after running

yaz-client -c /etc/koha/zebradb/ccl.properties localhost:210/biblios

It shows the following error:

                Connecting...error = System (lower-layer) error: Connection refused

Now, I'm wondering if this is a simple case of not opening port 210 on my firewall. I've run the following command, attempting to do this:

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 210 -j ACCEPT

Yet, this port isn't listed on my server connections (sudo netstat -pn --udp -listen)

Can anyone advise, please? (Happy to send the necessary areas of my koha-conf.xml file  off-list for diagnosis).

Many thanks in advance!

Best to all,
