ISearchManager Interface

Provides methods for controlling the Search service. This interface manages settings and objects that affect the search engine across catalogs.

ISearchManager Members

get_LocalBypass Retrieves a value that determines whether the proxy server should be bypassed to find the item or URL.
get_PortNumber Retrieves the port number used to communicate with the proxy server. This port number is stored in the indexer and is set by the ISearchManager::SetProxy method.
get_ProxyName Retrieves the proxy name to be used by the protocol handler.
get_UseProxy Retrieves the proxy server to be used.
get_UserAgent Retrieves the user agent string.
