Either use a linked server to the local indexing services catalog and then
use the four part query syntax to query the remote indexing services, or
index the remote server as network shares using the local indexing services
and query it that way.

I have a web app with a search based on Indexing Service and SQL 2000
(on the same box). Now, I need to move it to a new web server and a
separate dedicated SQL 2005. So, what should I do to be able to use
the same search using remote server?
