Penetrator 14.5.0 - June 2012
The IP ranges (CIDR and C class ranges a.b.c.d-e) cannot be marked as excluded
When you add an IP that is contained in a range that is already in the list, the IP is automatically marked as excluded (e.g. the list contains 192.168.0.1-126 and you add 192.168.0.25, this IP is marked as excluded) When you add a range that partially or totally overlaps a previously added range, the second rance will not be added.
Long IP list when I edit a template and put this list (long list of comma separated IPs) in the Add IP field, it does not save the template
Exclude IP bug Whewn you create a template with some excludes, save it and then you reload it, the IPs are sorted, but the excluded are not, so the association IP/exclude is wrong.
Exclude IP from CIDR When you add a CIDR and then you try to exclude an IP in the list, it does not allow, and displays the message
"The IP address(es) could not be added - IP or CIDR already added.". Instead excluding an IP from a range a.b.c.d-e is possible.
Schedule bug A
If you create a template with a range and an excluded IP, the View Schedule function does not show the excluded IP B The excluded IP will be scanned
