Google Analytics with Intranet

I want to add Google Analytics to a private site, are there limitations/requirements I should be aware of?

 

I was told that at one point the site containing a tracking code must be publically accessible. Is this true? I want to use Google Analytics in my intranet.

The GA tracking snippet gets loaded from your website into the user's browser. There it is executed and a 'hit' is sent to the Google Analytics tracking server.  So, your server can be isolated from the internet, but the end user's browser must have access to the internet for tracking to work.
