    Self hosted Google Docs alternative?

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a self hosted alternative to something like Google documents, offering spreadsheet and word processing capabilities.

    We do a lot of work abroad and in some areas google access is restricted and/or filtered. Working on a multitude of devices I'd really like a Google documents alternative, ideally self hosted so we can guarantee access.

    Does anyone know of such a thing, or a way this may be possible?

    Alex

    Why not set up a vpn or proxy? There really isn't a self-hosted equivalent to Google Docs. You could try a virtualized desktop like XenDesktop, or virualized apps like XenApp...

    Or, just run LibreOffice or OpenOffice and put your shared/collaboration files on a DropBox server. Not as elegant but it should work.

    There is also egroupware. I have not used it, so I don't know if it will meet the OP's requirements. It's in the repositories.
