0 pages indexed: get request to an IP returns a 302 to a Domain Name

I am trying to launch Arachni against a website using it's IP as a URL.

The webserver is responding with a 302 redirect message to the domain name of the server.

At this point a web browser, e.g. firefox, sends another get to this new name with the host http header filled in etc etc. Arachni just drops out.

Is this not indexing the site because the URL is different to that specified on the command line, and therefore out of scope?

    Exactly, Arachni will stay in the same domain (and subdomain) for the duration of the scan (although following subdomains can enabled with --follow-subdomains), you'll need to provide the domain name instead of an IP address.
