    Developing an Intranet

    Locked

    by rhoagland ·

    I’m gathering all the info I can find on how to get started developing an intranet for my small business employer. We are connected to the Internet via DSL, and have several off-site offices which would like to access files on our local server. Can someone suggest the best way to get started? Thanks.

      Since u r connected to internet via DSL , i don’t know whether u r provided with global IP to ur DSL router .If u hv so then u can very well host ur local server as internet server on Linux with Apache or IIS with WinNT or 2k.
      If u need further clarification , mail me pls.

      Thanks,

      From the brief description of the business need, you have an additional option with qualifiers and additional questions.
      1) Do you have a static or dynamic IP address assigned by your ISP? If it is static, your best solution would be to configure the remote offices for a VPN connection to your internal LAN.
      2) Do you have the resources (Web Server, personnel) required to setup and maintain the intranet? Or would it be easier to allow remote connection to the original and existing LAN?
      3) Will your solution require 24/7/365 accessability?
      4) What is your current LAN infrastucture at your main site?

      If you are set in the intranet solution, take a look at http://www.intranetjournal.com/
