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"

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!

Ubuntu :: How Can I Run Installed Package

Apr 11, 2010

I am running the xfce desktop on a new ubuntu 9.10 installation.I used the Synaptics Package Manager to install several applications, including R, the statistics programming language. After the installation, it took me quite a while to find where the package manager put the executable, but I found it.The problem is, I can't figure out how to get it to execute. I tried double clicking on it and I tried right clicking on it and selecting "Execute" from the menu that pops up.

How do I get an executable to execute? Also, is there an easy way to track down where the executables get put after I use the Synaptics Package Manager?It would be handy if I could put links to them in some central location.

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

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..

Ubuntu :: Unable To Remove Bad Package Installed From .deb

Oct 29, 2010

I attempted to install the CLI management tool for my Highpoint Rocket Raid card (rr62x) downloaded from this page: [URL] When I tried installing it, this is what happens:


# dpkg -i hptraidconf_3.5_amd64.deb
Selecting previously deselected package hptraidconf.
(Reading database ... 68853 files and directories currently installed.)


How can I get this package removed? I was able to get a different management tool installed to configure my RAID so I don't need this one. My system appears to be working, but everytime I use apt-get to install something else, it shows the hptraidconf package as failed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Check The Configuration Of A Self-installed Package?

Jan 22, 2011

I'd love to know how to check the original configuration of a self-installed package? For example, I would like to install the package XXXXX. I did:

make install

After the installation, I would like to know what the configuration I used for XXXXX's installation. Maybe some dependencies (for example, A,B,C...) were not found so that XXXXX was installed without depending on A,B,C.... However, now, I would like XXXXX depend on A,B,C... How to check whether the current installed XXXXX's original configuration?

Ubuntu :: Package Can't Installed Correctly But It Does Appear To Install Except The Stellarium?

Apr 22, 2011

Installed ubuntu 10.10 on my dell D600. Install went fine, but after updates, the initial startup sound disappeared. Also had a bit of an issue getting the wireless card to work, eventually found the answer in the debian wiki and got the legacy installer for the b4X broadcomn chipset. Since then, everytime i install something, the system tells me the package was not installed correctly, but it does appear to install, except the stellarium.
