OpenVAS Scanning without ping


Hallo together,

is there an option in OpenVas with which I can scan machines in which the ping is suppressed. Thanks for replying.

Just change the alive criteria to something that suites your network and scanning. If everything goes wrong, you can use assume alive.


The relevant documentation about the “Alive tests” can be found here:
