I downloaded this as an ISO (4.2.24). Installed into a VM. Waited for a sync to finish. Feed version is March 13 9:29 2019. It complains that it can’t reach a feed server, but I can ping Google via DNS and IP from the non-privileged shell account.
All my reports are empty. The hosts are firewalled, so they don’t respond to ping, but I can ssh to them from the non-privileged shell account. In the past, setting “Consider Alive” in the target configuration worked, but now it doesn’t. I’m not sure what to do to get this working again. Suggestions appreciated!
[Edit:The answer provided below, after multiple days, is NOT helpful. The target machine for this scan is sitting on a public IP address, running an internal firewall that blocks ICMP traffic, and can be reached by other hosts sitting on the same subnet. Previously, scans from an earlier version of GCE were able to work, when “Consider Alive” was set. Now, on the current version, they don’t. Closing this thread while blithely dismissing this as an issue relevant to GCE is highly user unfriendly. My conclusion as a result of this process? Use different software; my time as a consultant is worth more. I won’t be back.]
