Thanks, Craig! I have that on my system now and I'll get an Admin to install it for me.

Hi Daniel,

Have you had any luck with a sip2 testing tool? This will be a good control to connect to your sip2 server port, before you start testing your python/php tool. This testing tool was useful for us at Miami University Libraries when we were setting up our open source sip2 self checkout. Here is the link to the sip2 testing tool we used from the Central Library Consortium.
