Ubuntu Installation :: Add A User,the Nessus Daemon Is Running On My Machine?

Nov 20, 2010

after some tweaking i managed to get nessus installed on my machine. However i'm running into an issue when trying to add a user.The nessus daemon is running on my machine, i've registered. I think everything is peachy in that regard, but when i run:

zachadmin@ubuntu:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/nessusd restart
$Shutting down Nessus : .
$Starting Nessus : .[code].....

Obviously the command not found is my error, from what i understand there isn't a default user placed in the first time.So essentially i have thie program installed, but i can't access it.

Software :: Unable To Start Nessus Daemon

Sep 22, 2010

I have a backtrack distro on a usb stick. I wish to do the following :-
(a) Partition the usb stick to have a ext3 filesystem, so that the instln may be persistent for the changes. But the fdisk utility creates partitions as dev/sdb1p1 and /dev/sdb1p2. These however, could not be accessed by mkfs utility. How to overcome this problem.
(b) Next , I downloaded the nessus .lzm file and put it in the /base/module dir. But unable to start the nessus daemon. It suggests an error regarding unable to create /opt/nessus and /etc/nessus/nessusd.conf. I think starting nessus as root would help but the problem persists!

Fedora :: Nessus Configuration - Daemon Login Failed

Mar 24, 2010

Fedora 12
Nessus: 2.2.11-5
Authent: using passwrd
Client: GTK version
User: added with no rules
nessus-mkcrt: has been ran
Hosts.allow: hole made for localhost to nessusd with nessusd: (this took care of my ssl error)

Upon trying to log into daemon I get the cert then prompted with failed login. I am also not getting anything showing up in my logviewer (gnome). For most other daemons I have had them automagicaly pop up (denyhosts for example) how can I get nessus to show up as well.

Ubuntu :: Get MySQL Daemon To Start When The Machine Starts Up?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm trying to get mySQL Daemon to start when the machine starts up (and it requires root privileges to run). The command to startup would be

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start however that would prompt for a password, and that would not be very well possible now would it? Now, if i try to start it up without being root, it will not start. So this is my problem, maybe someone out there would know a bit more about this than me.

Ubuntu Installation :: Running 32bit 10.10 On A 64bit Machine?

Dec 29, 2010

I'm currently running 32 bit Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. Apparently, my computer can support 64bit OS. My / and /home partitions are separated and exist on different physical hard drives. Is it possible to just install 64bit ubuntu over my 32bit existing installation? Could I preserve the customizations I've made? what about application settings like chrome, firefox, compiz, etc.? Would I have to meticulously reinstall all of the little things I've done to my ubuntu installation?

Ubuntu :: Dbus Daemon, Loads Of Activity (slowing Down Machine)?

Mar 24, 2010

when calling 'top' dbus is having load of activity ('dbus-monitor --session') outputs also a lot of action (see attachement). this has effect that my machine is slowing down and normal work takes ages.I have no clue where the activity is coming from. I also had a look at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...or/+bug/441828. But there are no unnormal devices plugged in... (just keyboard + cordless mouse).when starting the machine the cpu load is ~9%. After a while (after 1 day) it goes up to 70-80%. the started applications do not change during that time. so i guess somewhere there is a leak.

Still trying to get my openVPN running.I can get the daemon running from terminal but nothing is configured. I copied my config file over from Windoze partition. My openVPN works flawlessly on both my windoze boxes.

export KEY_CITY="Winston-Salem"
export KEY_ORG="Example Company"
export KEY_EMAIL="steve@example.com"

I cant edit that,I tried but its a 'read only'. Are these instructions designed for long time users?

Ubuntu Security :: Need Daemon Running Apache Server?

Apr 5, 2011

I'm trying to modify an existing user so that any files they create can be at least read (although writing and execution would be nice) by any other user. The reason is because I need the daemon running my Apache server to be able to access files created by a daemon running under this user, files which will be created and accessed in real-time.

Fedora :: Running Java App As Daemon

Aug 28, 2009

I'm new to Fedora and have just purchased a subscription to a GoDaddy Virtual Dedicated Server, which I'm able to control using SSH.I have a Java application that I want to run as a daemon on this VDS. Some google searching yielded a bunch of different methods of doing this, none of which I'm sure would be guaranteed to work with Fedora, so I was hoping someone here could give it to me straight and fill me in on the simplest way of doing this.What is the best/simplest way to run a Java application as a daemon on Fedora?

Programming :: Passing Commands To Running Daemon?

May 10, 2010

I am working on a daemon that I want to change some variables while its running. Is this possible?I want to implement a command line type interface for my daemon so I can send it commands that will change the current values of specific variables, and also be able tell the daemon to load/save a config file.The only thing I have found so far is passing arguments to a daemon, but that seems to be a one-time shot when your first starting it.

Debian Installation :: Unable To Login As Specific User - Machine Not Accepting Root Password

Jul 31, 2014

Having installed Debian 7 on an old machine from a Liinux Format Magazine DVD I was unable to log in as a specific user. I can login as root and use useradd etc but when I logout of root I still cannot login as a user and nor will the machine accept my root password. I have to shutdown and reboot to get back into root. I'm using O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide from 2004 for the commands. Could it be that things have changed?

Ubuntu :: How To Open Nessus - No Interface

Jun 28, 2010

I successfully installed the nessus. It was .deb file . first of all, I type
"sudo dpkg -i Nessus-4.2.2-ubuntu910_amd64.deb".
The output of this command was "You can start nessusd by typing /etc/init.d/nessusd start"
That's why I type that command and I get " $Starting Nessus : ." There is nothing like interface of this software, when I try to search GUI from synaptic package manager. So What should I do ?

OpenSUSE Network :: Using Nessus To Evaluate Security Of Web Server?

May 7, 2010

I am using nessus to evaluate the security of a web server. I have started up the nessus daemon on the server, here's the netstat output:

Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 *:ldap *:* LISTEN 3565/slapd
tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 4026/mysqld

tcp 0 0 *:https *:* LISTEN 13855/httpd2-prefor
udp 0 0 *:sunrpc *:* 3463/portmap

It's listening on the default nessus port 9390. I am trying to connect to the nessus server instance using Open-VAS Client. I have generated the client and server certificates, I have pointed the client at the User Certificate File, the User Key File and I have a CA cert. I have created a user account on the nessus server. The problem is that when I try and log in from the Open-VAS client it keeps saying it can't connect. Is there anywhere I can check to see if it's being caught in a firewall, or where I can see if the connection is even making it to the server..
