What's the difference between inTERnet and inTRAnet?

inTERnet refers to the world wide web (www) - a vast interconnection of computers that allows communication in virtually all directions and is accessible to just about anyone (although some sites require a form of membership in order to gain access).

inTRAnet refers to a private network owned by a company and allows access to only their employees and/or only those that are granted a login id and password. This is not a "membership" that you can buy into or sign up for; you are either elgible for access or not. Often a company will grant limited access of their intranet to their trading partners. Intranets allow employees within a company to exchange and share data that aids them in completing their tasks or provides company information such as employee benefits. Generally, the information found on an intranet is not of interest to the general public.

Home Client-Server


Client-server platforms can be used to create powerful applications within a company. Client-server applications are often used in conjunction with intranets. For instance, data streaming in from trading partners - via EDI, XML, comma-delimited files, spreadsheets, or whatever - can be read by Visual Basic programs and posted to a company's database. And then DLL's, also written in Visual Basic, can be used by ASP browser-based programs to read data from various sources and deliver it to the users' browsers.

Spreadsheets and reports can be generated via client-server programs and delivered right to users' mailboxes. And of course, in turn, files can be created to be output as data feeds to other systems within the company or to business partners.
