We have a wordpress website that needs to show doc, docx and pdf files, we tried to use google viewer but the problem is that our site is running inside a LAN and seems that google viewer can't reach the files of websites without a public domain.

Any ideas?
Regards

I doubt there are any web components that can display doc or docx. It's a proprietary format, I am fairly sure Google can only do it because they convert it from doc/docx to google docs format (which doesn't work real good anyway depending on the document).

You could probably write an application to open the word files and save them as html format and then use that output to display on your website or run them through Adobe Distiller and convert all your doc/docx to PDF. Other than that I think the only way to do it is if you were running sharepoint: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-sharepoint-online-enterprise-help/embed-office-documents-and-pdf-files-on-a-website-HA102845475.aspx#_Toc362267432
