FostionerHi, I am sorry I just assume my questions will have been asked a million times, but here goes - [02:15]
gac410No worries ... ask your questions. [02:15]
FostionerCan foswiki be run on a Pi on an intranet, and have special logins for remote users [02:15]
gac410Pi? A Raspberry Pi? [02:15]
FostionerYes [02:15]
gac410It would probably be pretty slow, but it should probably work on a Pi ... I've not tried it.
What do you mean by special logins ... LDAP ?
[02:16]
FostionerWhat about just an old desktop? I just want to run an internal wiki for a small company ~20. I don't know what LDAP is, but maybe! :D I mean that admins should be able to check the wiki remotely, while regular users can only see it while on the intranet [02:17]
gac410Ah ... okay. remote access vs. local intranet access, that would need something else - a VPN, SSL VPN or IPSec or somethign I assume.
It would run on an old desktop as well. That would probably have a bit more gas than a Pi - though the newest Pi is pretty powerful.
[02:18]
FostionerWould it be easier/cheaper to run this in the cloud, and check to see if each user's connection is originating from the particular network?
I don't even know if that's possible. I just want to do this for cheap, while keeping it private for most employees.
[02:19]
gac410So as a simple internal web server, Foswiki would be fine on an re-purposed desktop. Remote access is really a completey different challenge.
Of course "fine on a repurposed desktop" probably depends greatly on the number of concurrent users, types of wiki applications developed, etc. But for simple wiki topic view/edit, not a lot of complex searches, probably okay.
You might want to look into what you have installed as the internet firewall. Some already have VPN support built in. Sonic Wall, zylel,. etc.

OftisionerThanks gac410, sorry i dropped there
okay
[02:24]
gac410You can see if you missed any of my replies at http://irclogs.foswiki.org/bin/irclogger_log/foswiki?date=2016-10-09,Sun&sel=13#l9 [02:25]
OftisionerI caught "probably okay." and "You might want to look into" :D
Did you mention an opinion on whether it would be easier to just do in a cloud service?
:)
[02:26]
gac410It's really hard to say. If you have linux experienced people, then running your own server is simple enough. Clouds have their own challenges. I've not used cloud services.
Foswiki.org runs on a virtual server on a hosting company in Germany.
[02:27]
OftisionerThanks for your help gac. [02:29]
