For the production system release you are right, I do run the indexer on the
server - but I like to test what I do locally *before* it goes into production.  
Being behind a dialup-link means that offsite links, which are being
followed until a maximum-link-depth is reached, are not availble and will 
cause the indexer to try and initiate a http-connection.
Since no such connection is possible, timeout will accour before the 
indexer can continue.  This is only a problem on my development system,
but it's stil annoying.

Will there be an option to stop perlfect search from following such offsite
links?  Say, only follow links on a certain server which is specified in 
the server config-file.
