Local III Catalogs

If your local catalog is outside your campus firewall, consult III’s firewall recommendations for using Millennium clients between your workstations (for Millennium circulation or other Millennium modules) to your local catalog. Certain ports must be open on the firewall in order to communicate with your local III server.
