 REPOST: Configuring Linked Server to Remote Index Server


I have 2 servers.  Server1 hosts SQL Server 2000 and Server2 hosts IIS and
Index Server.  I would like to configure a linked server on Server1 that
points to the Index Server on Server2.  Can this be done?

I understand that if the Index Service is running on Server1 I could simply

exec sp_addlinkedserver WhateverName,
'Index Server',

However, how could I configure this linked server to point to the Index
Service on Server2?  Could I simple replace 'MSIDXS' with

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

P.S.  I have tried using server2.web..scope() but continually receive an
access denied error.
