File Connector Requirements
Coveo license for the File Connector
Your Coveo license must include support for the File Connector to be able to use this connector.
When indexing PST mail archives, Microsoft MAPI component on the Coveo server
The File connector needs the Microsoft MAPI component to open PST files (see Installing the Microsoft MAPI Component for Mail Archive Indexing).
When the access to communication ports between the Coveo Master server and the file share server(s) is restricted, the appropriate ports must be opened in the network infrastructure such as in firewalls (see Understanding Shared Folders and the Windows Firewall).
Determine how you will organize your File connector sources and collections within the Coveo unified index (see Planning Your File Connector Collections and Sources).
