HIAB Scale External


This document provides an overview of how to setup Scale External scanning, that is to say using OUTSCAN as a Scale scanner from a HIAB.


With this feature you can configure Scale scans on your HIAB to run from an external network (OUTSCAN ) and get the result back to the HIAB. This setup is similar to Netsec HIAB External; enroll a HIAB, approve OUTSCAN as a scanner in distribution settings, and when setting up a Scale scan configuration in Portal on the HIAB select OUTSCAN as the scanner.

Ensure that all firewall rules are in place to allow communication between the HIAB and OUTSCAN . This includes preventing any form of Deep Packet Inspection, which can interfere with the SSL connection between them.

Approve OUTSCAN as Scanner on HIAB

  1. Log in to the HIAB scheduler. 
  2. Go to Main Menu > Settings > Distribution.

  3. Right-click the Outscan entry and click Approve to enable the communication.

Choose Scanner on Portal for Application Assessment

  1. Log in to the HIAB scheduler.
  2. Go to Main Menu > Portal > Configuration > Scan configurations.
  3. Add a new scan configuration by clicking green Plus icon on the lower right corner of the window.
  4. Select Application assessment.

  5. Under the Choose scanner drop-down you can select the newly approved OUTSCAN scanner.

    You can also edit any existing scan configurations to change the scanner.
