Port Scanner Question

When I go to Proxy Scanner:

Add>>Proxy Scanner>>Open

the ports show as:ÿ8080ÿÿÿConnect

When i check/uncheck/recheck "Use a proxy when scanning" I see I have PS set to use IP, Port 8080, and Connect Proxy type.

I am a confused. I would have thought this blank was for the target IP port range.

If so, how do i enter it?

Just like: 1 - 888

What about if left blank? Does it then scan ALL ports on IP range or single IP?

Thanks. Hope everyone is well.

    This as a proxy used for port scanning, is in the end using the GSA Proxy Scraper itself and pulls a random proxy from it's list to do the scan.

    You can of course use any other proxy you have or a good stable one from the list.

    Sven, the 'Ports' field on the 'Port Scanning' Pop-up Window showed:ÿ8080ÿÿÿConnect

    but now shows a list of ports that I remember putting into the field a while back. (8080,1080,60088,3128,8118,3127,3128,8123,81)
    I didn't change any settings just now!

    The 'Proxy settings' pop-up window is set to:
    Port: 8080
    Type: Connect

    Is it a bug thatÿ8080ÿÿÿConnect showed in the 'Port Scanning' Pop-up in the Ports field, then when I first open the module?

    I entered  1- 8888 in the 'Ports' field and PS is showing x/8888 Scanned so far.

    So I guess that's an OK format?

    Ups, Now I see what you mean. There is indeed some strange bug on loading settings...I will fix that shortly.

    new update (online in some seconds) should fix it.

    "new update (online in some seconds) should fix it."

    To anyone new to GSA: This actually happened and the update was there, as Sven said it would be!!

    Imagine any other software company making updates that quick?!?!?

    I can't. Thanks, Sven! :)
