Configure a Scanning Node in Transparent Router Mode

To configure a scanning node in Transparent Router mode, configure at least one network interface for outbound traffic. Configure the proxy settings in the same way as for a director node in this mode, except for the scanning role.

This is part of the procedure for configuring the Transparent Router mode. For on overview of the complete procedure, see Configure the Transparent Router Mode. For the proxy settings on the director node, see Configure Proxy Settings for a Director Node in Transparent Router Mode.

  1. Select Configuration | Appliances.

  2. On the appliance tree, select the appliance you want to configure as a scanning node and click Network Interfaces.

  3. Configure network interfaces as needed for your network.

    You need at least one interface for outbound web traffic.

  4. Click Save Changes.
     
    You are logged off and logged on to the appliance again.

  5. On the appliance tree, select the appliance again that you want to configure as a scanning node and click Proxies.

  6. Under Network Setup, select Transparent Router.

    Specific Transparent Router settings appear below the Network Setup settings.

  7. Configure the same port redirects as for the director node.

  8. Set Director priority to 0.

  9. Configure IP spoofing in the same way as for the director node.

  10. If you have configured HTTP and FTP proxies for the director node, configure them also for this scanning node, using the options provided under HTTP proxy and FTP proxy.

    Proceed in the same way as for the director node, but under Listener Address in the HTTP port definition list and the FTP port definition list, do not specify an outbound IP address like the one you specified for the director node.

    Leave 0.0.0.0 instead, which is configured in the entries that are provided by default, or specify it when configuring more entries.

  11. Click Save Changes.

To run more than one scanning node in Transparent Router mode, configure more appliances in the same way.

Under the Transparent Router mode, you can also turn a director or backup node into a node for scanning only. Select an appliance that runs as director or backup node and configure it using the settings for a scanning node as explained here.
