Registering new users with no email

Post by wand » Fri Apr 19, 2013 8:46 am

Hi guys,

This is my first request, so i will give details to help understand my idea i would like, if possible. I don't know about your workloads.

I managed to setup this phpbb 3.0 board on my desktop acting as a server for my LAN. The setup was fine, and it works, great, but on my LAN i don't have email.
The LAN is a isolated network with PC's. No internet is available where its located,so no email. I don't want to setup a email server, as that still wont have net access.
I am using a separate PC to post this with internet of course.

Basically a new user cant join the forum i setup because they cant retrieve the email once they try to join (using a different PC on the LAN).

I have tried Etherpad lite, this works well, but its in realtime, not what i want. If its impossible i will just go with Etherpad, but i would prefer a forum like this.

Is their an alternative way new users can join a forum on a isolated network? Perhaps when joining, the admin can see a pending user once he/she logins in to the forum, to manually join them? or join with no activate by email?

I hope you get it.

Thanks for your time
