First, I appologize if I was wrong with choosing subforum. Moderators can feel free to move it to right location.
I'd like to use FAST Search Service without SP Server Search engine.
And I have few basic common questions about my tasks.
My basic aim is to use Fast Search server as a search service without any SharePoint API.
I've found few WCF services already hosted at Fast Search server but those services just provides an API to manage (or administrate) Fast Server. Not to search.
Next thing I've found was QRProxyServer service, but I was unable to connect to any endpoint shared in config file (net.tcp, http, https). There was a different errors but Im sure that I can solve these problems with forum/internet searching.
So now first two questions:
1. Can I use FAST Search Server for seaerching throw its indexes and content without using (referencing) Sharepoint (API/Server/etc) ? If so, is I'm at the right way with QRProxyServer ?
2. And I'd like to know is there any way to store index data distributedly? I mean if I wanna create index (or crawl rule in common) for august month, I want to store it in 'August' folder.
