Arctic Wolf Unified Portal Telemetry Management

Updated Jan 17, 2024

Enable or disable ping only discovery

You can configure the scanner to only scan hosts that respond to pings, called ping only discovery. Ping only discovery is less intrusive than host identification, so it can be used when the default NMAP option is not suitable.

  1. Sign in to the Arctic Wolf Unified Portal.

  2. Click Telemetry Management > Scanners.

  3. Click Configure for the scanner that you want to view.

    Tip: The scanner must be online for configuration changes. If needed, use filters to limit your results. See Scanner filters for more information.

  4. In the Scanner Configuration section, do one of these actions:

    • To enable ping only discovery, click the Ping Only Discovery toggle to the on position.
    • To disable ping only discovery, click the Ping Only Discovery toggle to the off position.
  5. Click Update Configuration.

    This button is not available if the scanner is offline.
