    Can somebody explain to me what a LAN Based Application is? I've tried to google it but cannot find nothing. I would imagine its an application that only operates within a LAN, so i.e an office, so it wont be able to communicate to another office?

    It is an application that runs only on a LAN (Local Area Network) without internet access.

    The LAN could be small, 3 - 4 clients; or large with over 500 clients in multiple buildings.
    I have worked in both situations and used propriatary applications that ran on the LAN, but were not designed to be accessed from the internet.

    Video Conferencing, Remote Access Control, Gaming Servers, all started as LAN applications.

    This is the best info I could find and it isn't much.
