# Can I Create A Local Area Network Using TOR?

I've been using tor for quite a while now and I want to create a private ip network/lan but want it to be secure. I will try to explain this as best as I can.

Basically what I want to do is build a lan using tor. I want to be able to use a tool like scallion (https://github.com/lachesis/scallion) and have my users or me to be able to create a .onion and setup a local web server and have it point to the .onion they've just created (Not going through the internet). I've tried everything I could, I've tried options in the torrc like hiddenserviceport 8080 10.0.0.5:8080 and hiddenservicedir C:/Users//tor_hidden_service, I've tried google and the closest results i'm getting to what I want to do is "How can I share my tor with lan devices". Does tor require internet to work? Can I setup a relay with a lan ip address and configure that in tor browser somehow? Sorry if it is a lot to ask but I've been trying this for days and can't get it to work. ANY HELP is appreciated!

1. Try a standard torrc port ie. 10.0.0.8:90xx not :8xxx-8080's
