Thanks for the script Andy!  I will see about using it and trying it out. ☺  I created a python script as well that is called upon through a PHP page that can be clicked to create the job and scan it.  I use it for machines that we create a ticket for.  I can then just click scan on the PHP page and it scans it.  Had to use a couple Python scripts for it since my OpenVAS is on a different server than my IR server. ;)  But I will definitely try yours out for network equipment and see how it runs.

Subject: [Openvas-discuss] Python script available to start batches of scans

I have been using Openvas in conjunction with my pen testing training, including OSCP training.

I created a simple Python script to create and kick off Openvas scans for IP addresses in a file.    It's on Github:


It throttles the scans so not too many run.  Any comments would be great.  I know it's not perfect performance-wise and I'm new to Python but have experience with other languages.
