Do I need to connect my laptap with qualys sottware and VS through a firewall to do vulnerability scan for my private network servers or can i bypass the firewall.
Thanks in advance
You may have to configure scanner inside the firewall to run the scans. Contact support for the same.
Thanks & Regards,
what i did was bypass the firewall and run the vulnerability scan . It is the correct method.
Qualys is a cloud based/hosted solution. We dont have a copy that can be installed on your laptop.
You will need a Qualys subscription and a scanner appliance within your network if you are scanning private IP ranges. You can run your VM program without an onsite scanner appliance if you scan public IP's.
Let me know what questions you have.
Would you like to attend a training session? Which organization do you work for?
Sorry.. I have subscribed to Qualys and have the username and password to access the software on internet using virtual scanner on my laptop.
I did Vulnerabilit scan on some of my servers in LAN bypassing firewall. Is it ok? I got the reports..I that the right way?
It is totally okay. The other way is to whitelist the scanner IP address on the FW and scan. I am assuming you had appropriate permissions from the network team to bypass the FW. Also, now that you are scanning without the interference of a FW, you may also like the idea of authenticated scanning if not already doing so.
