OPAC IP Range Redirection
PINES libraries typically want their OPAC stations to search their own branch by default. This can be done in two ways: manually and automatically.
To set up an OPAC station manually, you will need to “hard-code” the URL with your library's database ID (found here: https://pines.georgialibraries.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=admin:ids). In your OPAC station's browser, set the URL for the home page to:
For example, for the Bogart library, which has the id 9, the resulting URL would be:
The manual approach requires that you physically set the URL at each of your libraries' OPAC stations. This is the only way for library systems behind a single public IP address to use this feature.
To use PINES' automatic IP redirection, you will need to supply PINES/GPLS staff with the public IP address ranges for each library location. This will then be added to a file that lives on the PINES servers with this format:
<Library Short Name> <start ip> <end ip>
WGRL-BO 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.254
The server side file is consulted each time anyone visits http://gapines.org, and if their IP matches a range on our list, they will be redirected to searching that library or system.
