You do say that you modded "koha-conf.xml to the IP address of the 
database server and granting the relevant privileges" and it sounds as 
though new db entries are being written.

Perhaps it doesn't matter where Zebra is running (your setup, your 
choice), but it still sounds as though Zebra, through the 
"rebuild-zebra" script with the -z option (cron job, incremental / 
process_zebraqueue) is not fully functional. Have you changed the env 
vars to tell it where the db is located? Have you got any logged error 
entries? Can you do a full re-index? What happens, any errors?, when you 
run ./rebuild_zebra.pl -a -b -z -v &> /dev/null
