    Intranet Inventory (IE5.5)

    As part of an assessment of their current intranet, my client has asked me to compile a "listing of what is there" The client has no tools for inventorying web sites and I thought that maybe someone out there may have had a similar experience and may have found a somewhat simpler approach than open all the index files in Word, removing hyperlinks and all the other stuff and then putting the names into an Excel spreadsheet for compilation. What I need is sort of a sniffer tool that will go out and tell me pages that are there and PDFs (and other docs) available, etc. Any insight that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated Thanks

    Ron, take a look at HTTrack and see if it will do what you want. It's intended to mirror sites, so I don't know if it will meet your needs, but it's a start...

    Thanks Mark. It was not immediately obvious that this will do what I am looking for, but I will study it a bit more.

    Re: Intranet Inventory (IE5.5)

    I have a VB program that I wrote, called Pic Grabber. I built it to download pics and movies from websites. I later converted it into a Search utility for our website, it downloads the text from the entire site into a database, which is then searchable through an ASP page. I can send you the source for both if you want. I don't know the entire specifics of what you are looking for, so I don't know how much effort would be required to tailor it to your needs.

    Thanks Drew. It sounds like it might be useful. I am not VB proficient, so I will check with my IT associate and see what he says.

    Again, I thank you very much for the offer.

    Okay, tell your IT associate it is in VB 6.0.

    Re: Intranet Inventory (IE5.5)

    Hey Drew, I'd be interested in seeing the script if you don't mind - I'm hoping I can port it to dump the data into MySQL, so I don't need an external (to the site) search mechanism.

    Re: Intranet Inventory (IE5.5)

    Here's the Site Search VB Service project. It is just the project, it doesn't include the Access database I dump the information into. You should be able to get the gist of what it does, and how it does it. I didn't look at this, I am just trusting my code file/folder structure <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>. I do know this code is not extremely clean, because it was converted from a picture grabbing program.

    Let me know if you need anything else to make sense of it, the complete project and database is at work, and I'm to lazy to browse through my stuff remotely right now.
