Introduction 

This chapter helps testers to calibrate Burp settings so they're less abusive toward the target application. Tweaks within Spider and Scanner options can assist with this issue. Likewise, penetration testers can find themselves in interesting network situations when trying to reach a target. Thus, several tips are included for testing sites running over HTTPS, or sites only accessible through a SOCKS Proxy or a port forward. Such settings are available within project and user options. Finally, Burp provides the functionality to generate reports for issues.
