That will always give <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 
2.0//EN"><html><head><title>403 Forbidden</title> etc, etc

Try using: curl http://lx2.loc.gov:210 which should give: <?xml version="1.0"?>
<zs:explainResponse xmlns:zs= etc, etc

Our production Z39.50 to LoC works perfectly using 
lx2.loc.gov:210  LCDB  USMARC  utf8
