[Openvas-discuss] Disabling synscan

I'm using the latest version of OpenVAS (on Ubuntu 11.04) and I'm 
looking for a way to disable/bypass ping and synscan (synscan.nasl).

Indeed, the synscan plugin takes around 5 minutes to scan a single web 
server with only ports 80 and 443 open (ping is filtered on this target).
Besides, I start OpenVAS after scanning the ports of my target with 
another tool, so I pass the list of ports I already scanned to OpenVAS 
and I don't want OpenVAS to redo the scan.
How can I do?

Note: I don't want to use nmap!

Thank you very much in advance for your help,
