Thanks for the response.

I've just runed ./swishspider . from the src
It had run correctly because I get:
drwxr-xr-x   3 root     staff       1536 May  1 16:21 .
drwxr-xr-x   8 root     staff        512 Apr 30 09:42 ..
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other       5321 May  1 16:21 ..contents
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other        638 May  1 16:21 ..links
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other         14 May  1 16:21 ..response
in the src directory.

But if I run the following (from src directory)
./swishspider . http://my-intranet-server-name/tmp.html.

The content in ..links is unchanged.
So, the run for the intranet URL is not working.
How do I get swishspider to to run intranet also ?

I've just search discussion group by search text "swishspider intranet",
I've found 2 links.
But they don't have problem like mine.
I've just tried the swishspider using our intranet IP address in the URL and
the ..links is unchanged.

Can anyone please shed some light on this one ?

Yes, the above is Perl code.  The above code is to blank out from the $url variable.

If you are using the -S http method then swish is using a perl helper
program called swishspider.  You can run this program alone to see if it's
fetching docs.

~/swish-e/src > ./swishspider
Usage: SwishSpider localpath url

~/swish-e/src > ./swishspider .

~/swish-e/src > ll -t | head
total 52672
-rw-r--r--   1 lii      users        5321 May  1 15:52 ..contents
-rw-r--r--   1 lii      users         638 May  1 15:52 ..links
-rw-r--r--   1 lii      users          14 May  1 15:52 ..response

that will tell you if it can fetch the remote doc.

Don't really follow that.  You may be describing a cgi script I'm not
familiar with.
