VAddy issues a verification file for each host; do not delete it after you have registered your server.
If this file ever disappears, you will no longer be able to update crawling stats or scan your server.
Adding a server
To add a server, select Server List from the menu in the sidebar and then click Add Server.
Selecting VAddy PrivateNet
From this page, you can choose between the standard version of VAddy, which can scan test servers on the public Internet, and VAddy PrivateNet, which can scan test servers on intranets and other private networks. Click Add PrivateNet Server.
Adding a FQDN
Select either HTTP or HTTPS (SSL/TLS) as the protocol used to send scan requests. (VAddy PrivateNet cannot scan for vulnerabilities though both HTTP and HTTPS connections at the same time.)
Next, enter the domain name of the server to be scanned (e.g. www.example.com) and click Add. You cannot register “localhost” or an IP address. This domain name does not need to have a public DNS entry; as long as the web server responds to the specified name, VAddy can scan it.
Installing the verification file
After you have finished adding your server, a verification filename and code will be displayed. Upload a file with the given name and code to your web server’s root directory.
Once you have set up the VAddy PrivateNet command-line tool, run the following command to establish a connection between your web server and VAddy’s SSH server.
$ vaddy_privatenet.sh connect
If this command is successful, it will exit and leave an SSH command running in the background to maintain the connection between the two servers.
Return to VAddy’s admin console and click Verify while you are connected to VAddy’s SSH server. After you have verified your server, you can run the following command to shut down the SSH connection.
$ vaddy_privatenet.sh disconnect
For more details on how VAddy PrivateNet works, see this page.
If the verification file has been uploaded correctly, your server's status will change to Verified.
If the file could not be found, you will see a message similar to the one above. Confirm that you have uploaded the file correctly and then click Verify again.
