Plugin PreferencesScan OptionsCredentialsTarget Selection

Target Selection


The first host(s) that will be attacked by the OpenVAS server. The options below allow you to extend the test to a larger set of targets. You may define several targets by separating them with a comma (,). i.e. : "host1,host2".

A special syntax is "file:/some/where/targetlist.txt" which means that the actual target names are loaded from that list.

Read from file

A textfile can be specified that contains the list of targets. This textfile may contain comma-separated lists of host and also may contain many of such lines.

Perform a DNS Zone transfer

The OpenVAS server will perform an AXFR request (that is, a zone transfer) to the target name server and will attempt to obtain the list of the hosts in the target domain. Then, it will test each host.
