Sure. I didn't know about the /stanza link to the opds, so I just entered the iport in the url line, and Aldiko displays the web page version of the server.

It doesn't look like a proper catalog, but it's internal to Aldiko, so I don't have to download it, then open it to add it to the Aldiko library, which is what you have to do if you access the content server from the Android browser. Just a single click on the 'epub' link of the desired book sends it straight into Aldiko.

It's not perfect, but it works to get my latest book or two onto my phone without the hassle of plugging it in.
