As a user I can say that I often start the sort by severity or port.
However the subnet seems all but useless for many uses. However, (and I've
mentioned this on the list before) one way to improve it quite a bit would
be to have a button to select whether the subnet field is populated with
the subnet number or a user-supplied string (such as "servers" or something).
I already have this hardcoded in my copy's source code, and then if I want
to take a couple of scans, put different names in each, and then cat the
nbe files together, the subnet selector allows me to look at several different
groups (i.e. servers, desktops, routers, or maybe something like windows,
linux, unix, or whatever).
Other than the code complaining about "Garbage in the Conditions" it works
Hope this helps.
