Has anyone used the Index Server under IIS?

I have been trying to get the Index Server to index my files so I can use it to search documents on the site.

So far I have had limited success which is why I’m asking for help. Basically, the Index Service is running, I know this because a search for “business” picks up numerous IIS HTML files.

However, it doesn’t return any word documents which I store on the site. The admin staff who use the Windows search page under Computer Management have found that it does actually pick up the Word docs on my site! And my ASP page works fine with Index Server on my home PC, just not on my web host.

Has anyone got any ideas on why it’s not finding the word docs (stored in a directory under the main www folder on my web space)?

Any help would be most appreciated.
