I dont know or can't tell if this setup can use the windows indexing, i havent looked in to that.
I dont use windows indexer.
But i do know if you setup as shown and you add a webpage to the server,
that makes is also usable for Windows users to search.
There was some work done in the area
But i dont know the exact status of it.
And one that looks promising is also this one.
Look at the vidoes on that page ;-) really nice .. ( not topic related tho..)
