Default connectors (SharePoint Server 2010)

SharePoint 2010

Published: September 23, 2010

This article lists the connectors, which were called protocol handlers in previous versions, that are installed by default in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. SharePoint Server 2010 uses connectors to connect to different content repositories so that the content in that repository can be crawled. You can install additional connectors to crawl content created by other Microsoft products or third-party software. For more information, see Install connectors (SharePoint Server 2010). You can also develop additional connectors by using the SharePoint Server search connector framework. For more information, see SharePoint Server Search Connector Framework (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee556429.aspx).
