Hi All,

 I'm looking for a nice, inexpensive, hardware or software solution to implementing an intranet within our small company. I'd like to have the site accessible from the outside via domain authentication. Anyone have some suggestions for me?

Well this is really a very vague formed question.

What size are we talking about ? 5 Users or 50?
What should be the goal of this intranet ?

Domain authentication can be done with almost any application that supports Basic-HTTP-Authentication... but to recommend a software we must definitly know whatfor it shoulde be.

The site will be for a startup, currently with 50 users now. 100 users are expected by this time next year.


- retrieving templates for document control
- downloading patches, upgrades, handheld apps
- all other basic intranet capabilities

Even though I am personally ot a fan of Microsoft.... if you already have an exchange-server then MS sharepoint could be something.

Something that also quite nice and for 50 Users and up is Sitscape Forum... I'm using this on some customers sites, even though my customers using it are all 200User++

I'm actually moving to intermedia.net for Exchange services/hosting. Would sharepoint work with an outsourced solution such as intermedia? I'll look into sitscape, thanks for the recommendation.

You can try AMP (APACHE, MYSQL, PHP) configuration. Apache would be the webserver for your intranet, MySQL is a database program (sort of like SQL server), PHP allows for running of scripts. You can also use PHP for mail exchange

Best thing is that all is opensource so it is free... Not to hard to setup either...here are their links...
