The KITE Local Caching Server (LCS) allows your computer to act as a dedicated network server for KITE testing, which gives students and staff local access to KITE content. By using temporary storage, or a cache, the server is able to access data more quickly while reducing demand on the KITE servers.

You can set up an LCS on a machine running one of three operating systems: Macintosh, Windows, or Linux.
