Indexing Local Website How To Return URL?
(too old to reply)

I want to use the index service to index our company wiki. This is a
site that is currently available internally, and soon externally (with
a username & password authentication). Someone suggested using a
search tool called Sphider to index the site, however I believe this
needs a LAMP server, and I would rather keep this on a Windows box
(which is our current web server). I've setup the Index service to
index c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wiki, and have created the ASP search page.
However, the results return the path as file:///c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wiki\data\pages\company\index.html,
how can I get the index service to index and return the path results
with the correct URL information, i.e. http://wiki.company.com/index.html.
The person who suggested Sphider says all you have to do with that is
point it to the site url, and it indexes the pages as they are
presented on the site, but I can't seem to do this using the index
service, as it needs to be either a local or network folder, not URL.

Any help, or suggestions would be appreciated

Maybe an example of how you are currently doing this?

At the moment just through the Computer Management console, I setup
the catalog, and have tested using the 'Query the Catalog' page below
the Directories & Properties folders. But the query always returns the
full local path, not the URL.
