got this error when I scanned our external facing website? anyone know the 'whys' this happened. it says 'scanned completed'.
Whats the error? Did you attach a pic?
Do you mean the message was displayed that way, with grammatical mistake?
I ‘snipped’ it from the ‘view’ portion of qualysguard.
Any number of issues could be happening. Your scan could be misconfigured and not be picking up the device (i.e. not using the external scanner). Or your firewall or IPS could be doing its job and dropping you to >>devnull
If it were me, I would probably create a custom scan profile and turn the performance down as to not set off any alarms and see what happens. Also remember to set it to the external scanner.
You could also take NMAP home and do a test scan there and see what the results are and if you are still getting dropped, thank your network guys.
On another note, your scan may be misconfigured. Here are the results of an NMAP scan.
