NONONONO! That word ("intranet") does not exist! It is a stupid

As I remember it, there is a more or less official document about this,
but I haven't found it again... The Internet Protocol
was invented to connect together local networks of different kinds
(ethernet, Xerox PUP, OSI networks, XNS, other other proprietary network
architectures), hence the "inter" part of "internet". The big global
internet would then be "the" Internet.

 Since you provided a Wiki link...
