I had couple of question on how the scanning is initiated and how it works for multiple scanner appliance.

  1. So after activation of scanner, is the communication initiated by scanner or console ?
  2. if the console starts the communication and if we have multiple scanner appliance behind our corporate network, how does the scanner knows which scanner to reach to ? (Basically which IP would it communicate with as the external IP will be same for all scanners isn't it ?) Even if the communication is initiated by scanner, how does console differentiate between different scanners in network ? Is the activation code (which is unique for each scanner appliance) sent with every pull request ?
