Adjective used to describe the state of activities performed in relation to a corporate or private network, typically via a VPN. When offlan, no VPN connection is available; hence, no internal resources are available. One may still have network access to the Internet or other resources, but when offlan, internal web sites or other servers are unavailable.
Even though I had signal, I was offlan, so I could not get to the files you put on the server.
