ABSTRACT
This article focuses on computer network Extranet. An Extranet is a secure extension of the organization's private Intranet that is accessed over the public Internet. It is designed to extend the organization's Intranet out to the Internet of its clients/customers and so enhance business communications. Extranets have many applications wherever Internet access, security and privacy are required. The basic components of an Extranet are a constant Internet connection via a route, an HTTP server, a firewall and data. The successful construction of an Extranet requires in-depth thought and planning before one starts assembling hardware and software. The reliability of Extranet will be measured in terms of availability. This means that one may need to install additional hardware to cover breakdowns. The Extranet will not be successful if one does not promote its use amongst the people, both internal and external, that it means to serve.
