Will this be a dual-stack server (accessible on both IPv6 and IPv4)?(y/n) [n]: n

Through what network-accessible IP address should clients connect to this server? [10.4.8.110]: YOUR IP ADDRES

If different, enter the IP address to which the server should bind. [10.4.8.110]: YOUR IP ADDRES

Each handle site has a version/serial number assigned to it.  This is so that a client can tell if a particular

site's configuration has changed since the last time it accessed a server in the site.  Every time you modify a site

(by changing an IP address, port, or adding a server, etc), you should increment the version/serial number for that site.


Enter the version/serial number of this site [1]: 1

Please enter a short description of this server/site: Uni Repository

The handle server can communicate via UDP and/or TCP sockets. Since UDP messages are blocked by many network firewalls, you may want to disable UDP services if you are behind such a firewall.

Do you need to disable UDP services?(y/n) [n]: n

You have finished configuring your (primary) Handle service.

This service now needs to be registered with your prefix administrator.  Organizations credentialed by DONA to register prefixes are listed at the dona.net website. 

If your prefix administrator is CNRI, go to http://hdl.handle.net/20.1000/111 to register to become a resolution service provider and then upload your newly created sitebndl.zip file. Please read the instructions on this page carefully. When the handle administrator receives your file, a prefix will be created and you will receive notification via email.

Please send all questions to your prefix administrator,
