Access Rules

In this section you can view and manage the access rules for your scan. These rules determine which host you may scan. Note that there are three kinds of access rules:

Server rules
These rules are global to the server and will affect all users that connect to this server.
Serverside user rules
These rules are specific to a user and affect only this user, no matter from which client he connects to this server.
Clientside user rules
These rules are specific to the client. They will affect only the scope in which they are defined.

The first two rulesets are sent by the server only to inform the client about possible restrictions and cannot be changed by the client. Only the last ruleset can be changed by the client.

A rule consists of an action and a target. To add a rule to the clientside user rules, select the appropriate action from the drop-down menu, enter the the IP of the target or a netmask and press the "Add rule" button. You can remove clientside user rules by selecting the rule and pressing the "Remove rule" button.

For more information about rules and the ruleset syntax, please refer to section * which explains the definition of serverside rules.
