Kite® Local Caching Server

Hamburger menu


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.

A Local Caching Server is not required for testing but is recommended for schools with limited internet bandwidth or unreliable internet connectivity.

You can set up a Local Caching Server on a computer running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux.
