Start Address of content source denied by crawler

Dec 8, 2008 at 2:22 PM
I tried to use the sample code and modify it to crawl my custom format which I call vfs. The PH gets initialized fine and I can see logs printing from the init method. But no other method is being called. I added a crawl rule vfs://* in the search settings for the Sahred Services. But in event logs I get a warning saying:
In the content source the start address is of the form : vfs://server/content.vfs

The specified address was excluded from the index. The crawl rules may have to be modified to include this address. (0x80040d07)

I'd be grateful if someone can give any clue if you happen to know something in this regard.

Thank you very much.
