Forum Thread: What Is GATEWAY_PROBE_HOST For?

Whenever I'm trying to work something out, the GATEWAY_PROBE_HOST not configured from the advanced options in metasploit always ruins my day. I'm assuming it's a gateway thing (obviously) so I set it from (why is this the default?) to my subnet After that metasploit works relatively fine, however occasionally has very odd issues and overall performance suffers. Last time I tried it crashed, then when I went to kill the process it spit out all the scan results from what I was trying to scan when it crashed straight from the shell prompt. But basically I just want to know what it's for so I can be sure that I set it properly.
