[ensembl-dev] Ensembl Mirror Install - BioMart Installation

Hello Rehaman,

Unfortunately I think you've misunderstood what the installation 
instructions are trying to say. We no longer recommend the local 
installation of BioMart as part of a local mirror, and when the 
documentation says to link to a public BioMart, it means to run your 
queries against a public BioMart and Ensembl database. There isn't a way 
to have our public BioMart instances talk to your private server. If you 
need to do large queries against a local Ensembl mirror, you're better 
off using the API in that case.

Please let us know if you have any further questions. Cheers.
