I've gone through and created a network dataset on our servers, but now would like to share that network with an agency who is not part of our County network (nor can they be granted access to our network). 

Since I'd like the end user to use our network for routing inside of ArcReader, I need to share the network with them.  I can't package the data because the network is a "non-simple feature".  Any suggestions on the best way to do this?  Can I simply export/copy the geodatabase that contains the network and associated layers to the end user, even though they do not have any ArcGIS licensing, just ArcReader?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!  Thanks!
