Sharing Prototype in a closed network
Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?
This functionality is now available for a limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise. While offline publication is available, current and future sharing and collaboration features will be restricted. The full product functionality and experience in XD is available only when XD uses Creative Cloud services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Adobe account team for more information!
I work at a large tech company and we're not able to store our designs on other people's cloud storage (and sharing/collaboration) solutions. That's such an essential part of the XD experience, and I'd like to have my team use the product - instead of Sketch/Illustrator.
How can I (have Adobe) set up custom cloud sharing for XD so designers in my company can access all the features without using Adobe CC?
I am aware of custom enterprise level installations of some Adobe products (content management systems) a was told at Adobe Max by and Adobe employee that it would be possible to set up a custom cloud storage solution that is not part of any Adobe owned cloud storage (for use with XD) - but got no further details at the time. It was just a conversation in passing.
I'm looking for more details.

dealbreaker - intellectual property precludes using external servers for sharing.
Yup, it's 2017 - not 2005. Why no options for closed networks? Makes ZERO sense. It's not like Adobe would have to build an export feature - they have that and use it for the current 'link to a prototype' functionality.
I would like the ability to export interactive prototypes to HTML 5, so I can share them with my team.
I know that there is a share feature that lets you share prototypes, but I cannot use it as all my prototypes have confidential information that cannot be hosted in an outside service such as Adobe. If I were to share the prototypes with your share feature, I would probably get in a lot of trouble.
I work in a well-know tech company that has a fruit for a name. :P. I am sure a lot of employees within my company currently have the same issue, not to mention other designers that work with confidential information.
Without this feature, I am limited to presenting the prototypes form my computer, which is not ideal.
The HTLM code does not have to be clean or pretty, just functional.

I don't want to upload it in the cloud in every case. I also want to send one offline Clickdummy file to my customer.
Deal breakers - no internal share, no password on cloud access.
@ Peter Flynn, these methods are still inadequate for client work;
For one, they would need to open Adobe XD on their end,
For two, the online prototypes are completely insecure (no passwords) and listed in google results.
An exported prototype could be zipped and sent securely.
Jumping from what we currently have to Adobe XD is difficult to fight for without this functionality.
Agreed with many other comments. I work for the MoJ and internet connections in prisons are not available (for obvious reasons). I love the simplicity of XD but this is a deal breaker so far. Back to other apps, unfortunately.

This will never come, there are other software bugs and errors that are 3 years old and Adobe developers haven't even bothered to check. Upload your prototypes to InVision, there is an offline feature there.
Please figure this out ASAP. XD is a non-starter until this is addressed. I can't count on having an internet connection every time I'm at a client's office to present (I've got 2 regular clients with highly secure environments so we have to go over mobile hot-spots which are slow and painful to setup).
Additionally the security concerns for clients who don't want their stuff "out there" is an enormous concern.
Exporting a local copy is super easy to do with Invision App. Then I can run local, upload to our server, and even password protect it if necessary.
+1 , Save us from Axure!
Any Movement on this? I have hit the same issues as everyone here, the desire to use XD but the limitations of only using internal servers. The work around with Axure is such a timesuck

We really need that!!! Today we are just redoing all the links on Axure :(
Sharing over a internal network or an internal server would be a very helpful feature to keep data safe and confidential. Or even to export it directly on the divece without an internet connection.
Would love to use the product, but as people are saying here, within our org, we absolutely cannot put on an external cloud server. Deal killer.

Our development team wants an copy of the full clickthrough in HTML format for archive in Git for versions. The current click-through is great for now, however it will be a requirement for us to have that clickthrough on our own servers eventually (if not sooner).
Like Muse CC it should have a virtual experience for people to view & experience the design as a working app/website instead of making a video.
This would be better for the receiving person and as the person would have better feedbacks on the experience he/she is getting from the virtual simulator as it would look and feel realistic.
Something similar to invisionapp.

I would also like to be able to export the entirety of the HTML with all artboards in order to have an accurate archive in GIT. PDF export is a start, but there is no navigation.
Some kind of zip export / HTML export of prototype would be amazing. Because of the security at my workplace I can't use or store my designs on an Adobe server.
An export is the only way I will be able to include XD (at it's full potential) in my day to day workflow.
