Default Search Engine Recommendations

We have an Intranet that is heavily written in ASP. One of the key features is that it grabs a persons login name using Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER"). This information is passed along as they browse our Intranet. I have tried a few search engines but have found that they cannot get past the part where this information is pulled in and passed along. Has anyone else encountered this and if so, what search engine did you use to overcome this issue? Thanks in advance to any and all responses.

Come on, surely someone has a search engine that they use with ASP that they can recommend.

I'm trying to find a search engine that can simply crawl through web pages that uses ASP code and index them for searches. A lot of our pages grab a persons username with the following statement:

username = Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")

These pages will then show more material to some users as opposed to other users. Other search engines that I have tried have choked on this code. Some even allowed for a username and password to be used by the spider part of the indexer but they would still be unable to handle this code.

Does this better explain my problem? If not, please let me know what else you would need from me to describe this problem.

Im not sure any search engines crawl thru ASP code. If they did anyone could get anyones code server side code. The html a page produces, yes. Are you talking about a search facility you want to provide within your site?

;;;These pages will then show more material to some users as opposed to other users

This is what I use a userLevel for. Show them content based on what userlevel has been assigned to them.

;;;Other search engines that I have tried have choked on this code
What exactly is choked (behaviours etc)

One example that I can give for what we want to do is for our directory listing. This listing pulls up everyones name and phone number with a SQL call. The page then executes a <% Do while not LIST.eof %> where it puts the information out in a list with <%= LIST("NAME") %> and <%= LIST("Ext") %> calls. It is pretty simple code but I can't find a search engine that will show the page with this list. If I do have one that finds the page, it simply shows the page without the SQL call so the list is bare.

One thing that is a factor here is that since it is for my company's Intranet, the number of people who use it is under 300. So we are not looking at using one of the commerically licensed search engines that cost over $10,000. I can't justify that kind of cost. However, there are a slew of search engines that can cost under even $1,000.

Also, I can publish more code if that would be helpful. I know that I haven't put a lot but I wasn't sure if I needed to do so. If it would help get me a recommendation, please let me know what you need to see. Thanks.
