Connect to your local DSA.

Issue a command such as "list c=GB, ChainingProhibited, dontusecopy".
The operation must fail, as ChainingProhibited is set (unless you DSA
happens to hold the master c=GB data!).
The error message returned ought to give you a reference containing a DSA Name
and DSA Address of a DSA to contact to progress the query.
