Please help me: What is the difference between intranet, extranet and Lan network?
An intranet can be considered as a "private version of the internet" within a company.
An extranet can be considered a "private intranet over the internet".
A LAN is an acronym for Local Area Network. A LAN is a collection of 2 or more computers that are all connected together through a switch, hub, router or directly.
Hope this helps
Intranet is generally seen in a larege company which can be used by their employee only.
