I just want to clarify that helpdesk can run Millennium sessions through
the SSH port via tunneling, but we can't. SSH tunneling is specifically
not supported for staff access, according to the SSH FAQ.
I have PuTTY on my home laptop and use it to connect in the
character-based system (but not Millennium) for admin and backup from
home or from the road. It was free to download and easy to set up. We
also use PuTTY on various workstations in the library where people don't
need the full-screen editor. For people using the full-screen editor,
however, we run a recent version of Anzio lite in SSH mode. Other
clients have trouble with garbage characters in full-screen mode.
To run millennium from offsite (not via tunneling) you need to have
specific ports open through the firewall (1030, 1031 and 2000, I think)
and not have access blocked via your Limit Network Access table. Limit
network access can only enable specific IP addresses, which most of us
don't have for our home computers. If I want to limit offsite access via
the Millennium client but still be able to connect from home, I need
either a static IP or a VPN.
The University has a CISCO VPN server and I successfully downloaded the
VPN client at home. However, I have never gotten it to work with my
Version DSL account. If anyone has been successful with this specific
setup, could you share any hard-won advice?

Hello Sun turnkey sites.
Now that we seem to have wrestled and lost on establishing the VPN
to our new OPAC server "behind" the city's firewall for Innovative
I would like to hear from sites where system administrators are using
for access to backup and for administrative access. Here is what
Innovative tells me:
For ssh tunneling, we only need the ssh port open and we'll manage and
all III software via ssh tunnel (.i.e., Millennium and such).
You could actually use ssh to do your system backup and other system
functions. All you need is an ssh client software on your workstation,
I just want to hear your stories and recommendations.
