  • With VPN (aka openvpn) = gives you access to the machines that is in the HTB network.
    It acts like an gateway to their network. (The vpn file is your key to access their network)

    Without VPN (ake openvpn) = no access to their network and you might be scanning a machine you shouldn't be scanning.

  • So the only way to scan machines( in general) i have to be connected on their network? Like is there a way to scan an htb machine without being connected to it?

    you are required to be connected to their network for this.

  • HTB machines are in a Private Network with Private IP addresses of a Class A network (10.x.x.x), so you need a Virtual PRIVATE Network to reach them.
