My goal is to create a link to an external filesystem and then for it to be
indexed within plone.

Reflecto installed and working. 

TextIndNG3 installed and not indexing.

Other info - instance.log shows some errors on creation of index:

Seems painful..... indexing is still working in general but as I've said not
for the newly added external filesystem :-(
