Does FFSearch follow symlinks?
No, it does not support it.
How can I create an admin who can log in through web interface?
Use script "adminadd.pl".
How can I create the "List of Files"?
You can create it by unix command "ls -lR >file", "ls -alR >file" or "ls -alLR >file". You can also compress the file by "gzip file", "bzip2 file" or "compress file".
How can I make Fast File Search to crawl SMB hosts from different network?
You have to add the hosts from different network by script "smb_add_IPs.pl". It may take much time because of high timeouts in nmblookup.
How can I make Fast File Search to crawl only some SMB work groups or servers?
Use option "--lookup" and the list of work groups or servers with ffsearch.pl, for example
ffsearch.pl --complete --lookup group1 group2 server1 server2
How can I make Fast File Search to crawl only some FTP servers?
Add the list of FTP servers to the command line, for example
ffsearch.pl --complete server1 server2
Is Samba 3.x supported?
Samba 3.x is supported since FFsearch version 1.0.4
