We've already got a Confluence instance for the "inside" - but I (the
business) don't want to put that on the Internet, as it has a lot of
very proprietary information on it -and we don;t want to pay for
another one - hence the search for free version for the "outside" Wiki
(which will be much less detailed and simpler).

I've actually got an instance of that up and running - but getting it
talking to AD for authentication is proving problematic - and I don't
have the resources to dig into it properly.

I'll keep investigating - maybe I can find one which is point and click. :)

Thanks for your input.
