The New Manual Scan Wizard

With your new site configured, you are now set to configure your first scan:

1.

Click the 

New Manual Scan

 button shown in Figure 4-4. You should see 

the Start New Scan dialog shown in Figure 4-5, which prompts you for the 
assets you want to scan or exclude. In this example, we are scanning our 
default Windows XP system.

2.

Double-check your target IP address to be sure that you’re not about to 
scan the wrong device or network inadvertently, and click the 

Start Now

 

button to begin.
