This document lists configuration information, such as server addresses, for those who want to configure their own Internet software to connect to ITS services. It does not explain how to configure your software, but simply lists the configuration information you will need to enter. See Additional Resources at the end of this document for other configuration information resources.

If your school, college, or unit provides computing services, check with your computer support person for the appropriate configuration information for those services.
