All crawled content requires the use of a protocol handler to gain access to that content. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 provides protocol handlers for all common Internet protocols, such as HTTP, and HTTPS. However, if you want to crawl content that requires a protocol handler that is not installed with Office SharePoint Server 2007, you must install the third-party or custom protocol handler before you can crawl that content. Check with the third-party manufacturer for instructions when installing third-party protocol handlers.

The following protocols are supported by the default protocol handlers in all editions of Office SharePoint Server 2007: file, http, https, rb, rbs, sps, sps3, sps3s, spsimport, spss, sts, sts2, sts2s, sts3, sts3s, and notes.

NoteNote:
The notes:// protocol handler is installed, but not enabled, by default. For information about enabling this protocol handler, see Configure Office SharePoint Server Search to crawl Lotus Notes (Office SharePoint Server 2007).

Additionally, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise Edition provides protocol handlers to support the bdc and bdc2 protocols.
