Filter Private IPs

Is there a way to configure an OpenVAS scan to filter, re: ignore and alert, a scan request if the target is a private IP?

I want to know if I can avoid the step of verifying hosts are public when I am collecting host information.

Category description of the “Vulnerability Tests” category where this post was made:

Vulnerability tests (VTs) are executed by a scanner and detect vulnerabilities of various kind. VTs also detect services, products etc. and gather policy compliance information.

and the template showing up for new posts:

Use this category for all topics (General discussion of results, reporting of false positive / negative results, VT development) around vulnerability tests (the so called “NASL scripts”).

Please chose a different/better fitting category for all topics related to GVM (Installation, Usage, Configuration, Scanning).

Obviously your question doesn’t belong into this category, moving into a better fitting one.
