Aleph v. 23 Upgrade: New Features and Functionality

This guide will provide training for the new features and functionality that comes with the upgrade to v. 23.

In order to connect your SelfCheck or other SIP2 systems to the new Aleph V23 server, you will need to modify the server address in the CreateSecureConnection.bat file which is used to connect your system to Aleph via SecureTunnel.

NOTE - First time connection:

  • After making the server address edits (see below), and saving the file, you must first open the CreateSecureConnection.bat  (by doubleclicking on it). 
  • You will be prompted
  • Store key in cache:  y

If the key was accepted, the DOS window should stay open in the background and you can start or restart the Selfcheck software and test checkout.  ​

Each time afterwards, you should be able to start the CreateSecureConnection.bat and Selfcheck software automatically.

STEPS TO CHANGE THE SERVER ADDRESS

The Production V20 server address is fcsopac.flvc.org(colleges) or susaleph.flvc.org (universities).  You'll need to change that address to the new Production v23 server address, see below:

  • For College Libraries: 
    • Your CreateSecureConnection.bat file might be located on the SelfCheck or SIP2 device in c:/SelfCheck_Secure_Connection
    • Right click on CreateSecureConnection.bat - Select Edit to edit the server address:
      • FROM: ssh2 +g -a -x -S -L 56XX:fcsopac.flvc.org:56XX selfcheck@fcsopac.flvc.org (56XX is your port number)
      • TO: ssh2 +g -a -x -S -L 56XX:fcsils.falsc.org:56XX selfcheck@fcsils.falsc.org
  • For University Libraries
    • Your CreateSecureConnection.bat file might be located on the SelfCheck or SIP2 device in c:/Program Files/Putty
    • Right click on CreateSecureConnection.bat - Select Edit to edit the server address:
      • FROM: "C:\Program Files\Putty\plink.exe" -N -L xxxx:127.0.0.1:xxxx -i SelfCheck-XX##.ppk xxsc##@susaleph.flvc.org
      • TO: "C:\Program Files\Putty\plink.exe" -N -L xxxx:127.0.0.1:xxxx -i SelfCheck-XX##.ppk xxsc##@susils.falsc.org

Everything else should remain the same, such as:

  • the Port number
  • the RSA file (FCS), or *.ppk file (SUS)
  • username (SUS)

You should not need to make any changes to the Network section of the Selfcheck Admin.
