No, we are about 10 developers. We have a local network and we access to
the repository using 'file:///[ServerName]/repos/...'. It works fine and
I don't wish to change it because we had problems setting up Apache and
we decided not to use it.

When we installed Windows on our computers, we simply used the same user
name for everybody (which was the enterprise name). So when we installed
Tortoise, we noticed that all the "commit" were sent with the same
Author name !
