    Search engine for Samba


    Hi to all,
    I have a CENTOS server with Samba installed and a share with about 2 TB of various files (pdf, word, excel, text file, jpeg). I'm looking for an application can help to search quickly inside this large archive.
    The better solution could be a web interface where each client (normally a windows XP client) could do a search... Do you know something like this?

    Thank you very much for your help!!

    Have you tried Google Desktop? You can add or remove folders to index. If your file server is mounted, you may add it to the Google desktop search and indexing.
