what's the best (most secure) way of indexing an intranet and internet site
(which are currently being hosted from the same physical box, though this will
change in the future) from a single installation of htdig?

I'm assuming I need two separate config files, pointing to two different search


database_dir: /var/lib/htdig/db/
database_base: ${database_dir}/intra


database_dir: /var/lib/htdig/db/
database_base: ${database_dir}/inter

However, I can't see how I can prevent someone who guesses the name of the
intranet config file from being able to perform searches on the intranet. Do I
need two copies of the htsearch binary, with the access control handled by

Environment: htdig 3.1.5 on Red Hat Linux 6.1
