There is a very interesting new WAIS server. It is called DYNAMIC netfind
and performs Netfind searches via WAIS. For details see appendix of this

I tried to access this new database via the WWW-WAIS Gateway. Unfortunately
my XMosaic 1.0 client and the www 1.4a client running on info.cern.ch
both are reporting the following error:

----- Begin Included Message -----

WAISGate: Syntax error in WWW document address

Access error

The WWW-WAIS gateway reports the following error:

Syntax error in WWW document address 

Address received was 


Syntax is //node:port/databse 

or //node:port/databse?query+query 

or //node:port/database/doctype/doclength/docid 

----- End Included Message -----

Dynamic searches via WAIS would be a very valuable new service which
would perfectly integrate in WWW.

Is there an easy way to patch the WAIS Gateway so that it can deal with
those kind of searches?
