We have an internet (SharePoint 2013) and intranet (SharePoint 2010). I want to have our internet (http://www.example.com) items in our intranet search result. We also have proxy setting.

I created a web site content source and I typed "http://www.example.com" in "Type start addresses below (one per line):" but I got "Access is denied" error.

  • I want to have 2013 result in 2010. our 2013 website is an anonymous site. – Melika Jul 8 '15 at 19:53

SharePoint 2010 requires a user account for crawling content from sites, even if they are configured for Anonymous authentication.

SharePoint 2013 resolves this issue by introducing a new approach – Anonymous which eliminate the need of passing an user account and trying to authenticate for crawling content for public-facing web sites with anonymous authentication.

Alternate to this is crawl that site as Web Sites instead of SharePoint site.
