Hi everyone,

I want to create an intranet site for the company, the purpose of this site is :
as we have a Company News letter which is a Word document size 8-15 MB, right now we are emailing it to everyone, which obviously is not a good practice becasue it take lots of exchange db space as people dont delete it.

what i want is to create an intranet site and give everyone to access that link to read the file.

I have a Webserver already configured and i know the IP address of that server as well ,its IIS

how can i do it.

I know dream weaver and asp (beginner level) or if i can create a static page and then everyweek, our receiptionist can upload a new company news letter and everyone can access it.

Hai,
Just upload/place the company news letter in your wwwroot or any other place that is sharable.Make a link pointing to it.
Now others can access the site http://192.168.10.2/newsletter.doc and read the letter, or you can even create an ftp site for them to download it.
Another solution is to create a webpage with a download button pointing the news letter.You can do this simply using asp.Just make an ASP page with the following line

Response.AddHeader "content-disposition","attachment; filename=newsletter.doc"

If you can use .NET just go to
http://www.aspnetmime.com/tutorials/Sample_AttachmentToBrowser.aspx and see how you can do it.
 or if you want to use plain asp visit
http://classicasp.aspfaq.com/general/how-do-i-prompt-a-save-as-dialog-for-an-accepted-mime-type.html

Hope this will solve your problem.............

Yes thatz what i suggestd as my first solution.
Do these.

Create a page named default.html in default wwwroot directory
place the newsletter also in the root directory
place a link to the newsletter.doc in default.html

Now when they access the site by typing http://ip/
they get a link to the news letter.doc and since their browsers know the word type their browser will automatically show/display the letter in browser.

Thatz all, go n test u'r self
