Adding a nCircle IP360 Scanner


JSA uses a Secure Shell (SSH) to access a remote server (SSH export server) to retrieve and interpret the scan data from nCircle IP360 appliances. JSA supports VnE Manager version IP360-6.5.2 to

This configuration requires the target settings that you recorded when you exported the XML2 scan data to the remote server.

If the scanner is configured to use a password, the SSH scanner server to which JSA connects must support password authentication. If it does not, SSH authentication for the scanner fails. Make sure the following line is displayed in your sshd_config file, which is typically found in the /etc/ssh directory on the SSH server: PasswordAuthentication yes. If your scanner server does not use OpenSSH, the configuration can differ. For more information, see the vendor documentation for your scanner.
