How to Access It

The mb2freedb gateway is setup at the Oregon State University Open Source Lab and can be accessed using the following settings:

host freedb.musicbrainz.org
via http
port 80
path /~cddb/cddb.cgi

It should be just a matter of changing the host and possibly the path, as the other settings are standard for most applications.
