Hello Andrew,

I got the problem solved by using a static-ip (URL), however another one I
have come across since.
Website uses both http and https ..
Would like to index on the https URL however I cannot seemed to get it to
If I open up on the http (80) it works - although all my search results map
to http:// (as expected) , this creates a annoyance from the browser since
a message about secure-insecure is always displayed when you follow search
results on the https:// website.

Any ideas for indexing on my https Website?

Hmmm... I don't think you'll be able to build an index without changing
logic in if you don't have a valid reverse IP entry.
