Hi

I still seem to be having a problem indexing a share using WinNt platform swishe
if I use 
IndexDir "//brutus/is$/" 
or even 
IndexDir "\\brutus\is$\"
the share getts indexexd but when comes time to search it for say the word school
using 
swishe -w test -m 0 -f isit.index 
I get 3 hits (all of the hits are on really huge text files)

when I do the same thing on an index generate with 
IndexDir "x:\" #where x is attached to \\brutus\is$

i get 309 hits and the index is 3 times as big

for UNC do you need to use spider.pl like a web site or
just treat it like FS

# By default, swish creates an index file in the current directory

# searching.  This is convenient, but not always desired.

IndexFile isit.index



# If you wish to follow symbolic links use the following.
# Note that the default is "no".  I you are indexing many
# files, and you do not have any symbolic links, you may
# still want to set this to "yes".  This will avoid an extra
# lstat system call for every file while indexing.

FollowSymLinks no


# end of example
