Hosts per line has always worked for me. I usually run fping against the range (i.e . 192.168.0.0/24) and direct the output to a flat file and use that flat file as my target list.

I've always done one host per line or comma separated (I forget which). IIRC, I think CIDR is supposed to work, but I had some issues last time I tried it.

When specifying a targets file on the commandline what is the format of the
file? What I recall is that it is one host per line, is that correct? Does
it allow ranges? E.g., 192.168.0.1-20? How about CIDR? 192.168.0.0/28<http://192.168.0.0/28
I didn't see this documented in the NessusClient_3.2_User_Guide.pdf and
nothing else looked relevant.
