Help with ETP Server please

Post by vip_shadow » Fri May 07, 2010 7:00 am

Any kind of help on this problem is much appreciated.

Is there any way to limit the searches of a ETP server to specific folders?
To clear the situation let me give you an example.

The latest beta version is running on a windows server 2003 machine and searches the files and folders on D drive.
There's 4 folder on Drive D. Here's the structure of this Drive:
D _
|__Folder 1
|__Folder 2
|__Folder 3
|__Folder 4


2 client PC are connected to the ETP server (PC1 and PC2)
I'm trying to set these 2 PCs to search only specific folders on ETP server. (not the whole D drive)
Let's say PC1 needs to search only Folder1 and Folder2.
While PC2 needs to search only Folder2 and Folder3.

Is it possible to do this?

thanks for any kind of advice.

The "Everything" ETP server is intended for a single admin user.
Although you can have multiple instances of "Everything" to search and access different files and folders.

See Multiple instances for more information.

To limit one instance to include only D:\Folder1 and D:\Folder2:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Volumes tab.
  • Make sure your D: drive is the only volume with Include in database checked.
  • Click OK.
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab.
  • Check Enable exclude list.
  • Click Add Folder.
    • Check Include for type.
    • Select D:\Folder1.
    • Click OK.
  • Click Add Folder.
    • Check Include for type.
    • Select D:\Folder2.
    • Click OK.
  • Click OK.
Like above, to limit one instance to include only D:\Folder3 and D:\Folder2:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Volumes tab.
  • Make sure your D: drive is the only volume with Include in database checked.
  • Click OK.
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab.
  • Check Enable exclude list.
  • Click Add Folder.
    • Check Include for type.
    • Select D:\Folder3.
    • Click OK.
  • Click Add Folder.
    • Check Include for type.
    • Select D:\Folder2.
    • Click OK.
  • Click OK.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to have multiple ETP servers on the same port.
You will need to change the ETP server port for one instance.

To change the ETP server port:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the ETP/FTP tab.
  • Change the ETP/FTP Server Port (For example: 5485)
  • Click OK.

what a pity such a great software is so inconvenient

for half a day I was so glad I've found something that can be used
instead of Copernic Desktop search.

In an actual windows domain environment, hundreds of clients are connected to a windows 2003/2008 server
and each client is supposed to access special shared folders (according to the logged in user rights). And it's
impossible to run hundreds instances of "Everything" on the server to allow domain users search only their folders.

I have three suggestions for you (which later I will post them in suggestions)
Allow "Everything" access a mapped drive
OR
Allow "Everything" access network places (and through there a shared folder on a PC)
Or
Allow an instance of "Everything" that is connected to a ETP server, include/exclude ETP server's folder.


Million thanks for your time.
