I planned to use swish-e as a kind of desktop search-engine. For private 
usage I have no problem to
put my documents in a place where the webserver can access them. But I 
want to use swish-e also
in my company to index the project directories in the network. I want to 
place the index in a public
directory and share it with my team members. In this case I can not 
change the whole network and
directory structure and my admins will also have a problem to create 
aliases for whole network shares :-).
That's why I'm looking for an alternative way. An other idea was to 
write a small windows tool which
will copy the link by right clicking it from the search result and open 
it via windows if I can't access it via
the webserver.
