searching the UMLSKS website I find:

which basically says that they're working on it but currently you
can't run a local KSS server. So the absolute easiest thing (run the
server locally, allow one to configure the name of the server for
UMLSTab) might be possible eventually, but is not possible right now.

The next level would be to bypass the UMLSTab and explicitly link the
two statically, that is using the Protege API and UMLS API on the
static downloaded UMLSKS files. Unfortunately, that has a higher
labor/time/learning curve cost to it.

Any suggestions to making this easier would be very welcome.
