Do not scan printers

Synopsis :

The remote host appears to be a fragile device and will not be
scanned.

Description :

The remote host appears to be a network printer, multi-function device,
or other fragile device. Such devices often react very poorly when
scanned. To avoid problems, Nessus has marked the remote host as 'Dead'
and will not scan it.

Solution :

If you are not concerned about such behavior, enable the 'Scan Network
Printers' setting under the 'Do not scan fragile devices' advanced
settings block and re-run the scan.

Risk factor :

None
