How to create an Intranet site

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.

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 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 and see how you can do it.
 or if you want to use plain asp visit

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

but this will come with a download right ?
i want the they just type http://ipaddress or name /newsletter and this will open a local site in internet browser like a webpage is that possible
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
