I want to know how I can set up a local website for the company I am working for. I am a student on attachment and have decided to introduce what has never existed which I see as a betterment of communication and to serve clients with several issue over the network like news papers since with the current economy the company has seized several services which I can access over the Internet and offer users over the Intranet.

I have developed the site with AppServ on my local machine on the network. Also available are the companie's servers that I administer. I do not if ever it is possible to use my local machine with XP if yes how.

You would probably be better off finding a spot on a company's server to host the intranet, even if that's just a temporary "show off" thing.

A client machine reboots, may or may not change IP, may hang because of a buggy browser on a buggy website, it may be be that the network is not designed to host servers on the client's VLAN, etc...

Mr Jerome I want to say, first my issue is not an issue of "show off", but on the other hand it is an issue of learning, building more skill, putting into existance my desire of being a web programmer so I see this as a start. Any way thanks for yuor reply and by the way I wanted to know something Sirs and Madams the programming part I think for a start I can learn but my major concern right now is the set thing. How do I get it to work especially on the part of a user friendly domain.

That is something your IT department will have to handle. They will need to add a "friendly" DNS name for your PC to their internal DNS, rather than the "unfriendly" name it probably has now. (Like "Engineering-XU4583").

Other than that, there's nothing you need to do to "deploy" your server within your company, other than to make sure your machine is on and the web server is running.

(OK, perhaps add a link on the company's "main" Intranet server. But, again, that is something for your IT department, or whoever maintains that server.)

I don't see anything wrong with using your PC - at least initially - to provide a web service within your company - as long as the users understand that it's an experimental service that might be subject to interruption.

Do be careful of politics, though. Some might feel threatened by your action. I usually recommend "it's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission." But as a student intern - maybe better to ask permission first. :)

Anyway, you may find people find all sorts of excuses why they can't/shouldn't help you. Hopefully, though, they will be delighted and cooperative. Welcome to the business world!

Oh, by the way, I meant "Show Off" in the way of a prototype : showing your management what benefit they could get from an intranet without deploying a real one, so not using a server for that but hosting it on your PC.
