I am using gvm 21.04 that is fine
As I know my hosts are alive I want to deactivate alive host test then I choose ‘
consider alive’ option while I’m creating my targets
But when I check my network log I see that openvas pings hosts using ICMP.
would you please clarify the role of ‘
consider alive’ for me?
I have two different understandings of it:
1 - it deactivates the first phase of the scan that is ping host (I’ve come across this from About test_alive_hosts_only)
2 - it considers even unreachable hosts alive after pinging and not receiving response
which one is correct?
and one more thing
'test_alive_host_only' option! which is mentioned in this topic About test_alive_hosts_only
I couldn’t find it in the greenbone version I’m using , where I can set it ?
