You have heard of search engine. Basically a search engine has a bot which automatically crawls a lot of websites and index them to a database so when you perform a search, it tries to match your search query with the database. You can now create a search engine for your domain network by crawling all the shared folders in the network. As a network administrator, administering a network is already a very tough job especially maintaining with the security but this tool called Network Search Engine makes it all easier by crawling and indexing all files found on network.

Network Search Engine Features:

* Can index all available shared folders on the network or just those that you select.
* Provides a built-in high-speed searchable database.
* Accessible via Web-interface and Windows GUI client.

* Convenient administration console.
* Complete and incremental scheduled crawl modes.

This software works on a domain network. If you are an admin on the domain, all you need to do is install this software on your computer, specify the domain name and your username and password so that it can login to the network and crawl all the shared folders available. You can schedule the bot to crawl at a specific time, folders to be excluded during the scan and type of files to be included or excluded.

Once you’ve correctly set up the crawl and index has started, you can search for files what in web search engine. Network Search Engine is free which can be run on Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7 both 32 and 64 bit.
