Dear Laura

In order to use that interface you need to open the port (Port used by gift, e.g. 12000) in your internal (if any) as well as external (if any) firewall. 
If you use a NAT device (router) you also need to configure a port forwarding that connects all requests from external networks to the specified port (e.g. 12000) to the local IP adress of your machine (e.g.

Dear Henning,

my computer is connected to the internet
so I tried the interface at,
I try to connect to my gift server running in localhost (I tried both and localhost)
but what I get is
Connection refused (111)
and no response from the server
- is something else supposed to happen? am I doing it wrong?

Dear Laura,

is your PC accessible from the Internet? Maybe you can test it from the Interface at

We can extract this code for you which should be very similar to the code of the PHP Interface you tried. Usually when adapting some pathes and small modifications for changes in PHP this Interface should work.

What was the exact problem when you tried these interfaces?

What were the problems with the perl scripts for the querying? For me they have always worked, although the parameters are a bit cumbersome to add.

I think that Wolfgang also had a python interface.

Cheers, Henning

Hello, my name is Laura,
I'm developing a python project I was hoping to integrate with some of
GIFT functions.
My question is very simple: I have installed gift on my Ubuntu 10.10
machine, I've added a new collection no problem, and I am able to start
the gift server... now I need an interface to work with the server.
The Client.php file provided with the sources is not working, I've
looked online for alternatives and, I've tried, and; none of
them are working for me./
/Does anyone of you have suggestions on what to use as an interface to
the gift server?/
