I have a Visual Basic application which needs to search through a remote IIS machine's indexing service catalog. I can find references to the query language OK. I can find references to the remote connection too:
Calalog = "query://[hostname]/[catalog]"
but am having trouble with getting a successful connection remotely.
Error message is "there is no catalog".
Some debug info:
I can connect to the local machine's index server get search the local catalog.
I can run the catalog query from IIS on the remote machine, so it's functional.
Two thoughts come to mind:
1. Is there a security setting on Windows Server 2003 that forbids a remote query of this nature?
2. Does the catalog get queried via a UDP or TCP port other than port 80, therefore requiring a firewall adjustment ?
