as there are many documents (word, Openoffice, pdf, etc. ) on the disk of my NAS (MBWE Whitelight), I thought it might be a good idea, to use a search engine to search for documents by giving some keywords.
For this purpose, I thought about using the search engine "regain" (open source), which creates an index by crawling through different file types and then offers the search via a web-frontend, which works pretty much as we know it from google.
Of course this search engine could be run on every desktop-computer/laptop, but I guess it makes much more sense, to run it on the NAS.
Regain runs under java and thera are a desktop and a server version. I tried to set it up on the NAS, but I guess I didn't get to far with it yet, so I thought I might ask if anyone else has thought about something like that?
