    NESSUS command error


    I'am using nessus 4.2.2

    When running with command line:

    nessus -q -x -T html 127.0.0.1 1241 myUser myPassword listTarget.txt output.txt

    1241 is default port of nessus

    The error throw out:

    nessus : Could not open a connection to 127.0.0.1

    But when I running nessus GUI by browser with localhost on port 8834 is ok.

    What happen with my nessus command?

    Please help me.

    Wink Nessus 4.2.2

    Unfortunately, if you are running a Home Feed, Tenable have disabled the NTP protocol in favour of the new XMLRPC interface (port 8834). If you have the professional feed, the port should be able, though, Tenable will probably remove it all together in a future release.

    If your looking for a Nessus management product, try this one.

    vsam.sourceforge.net

    A new release will be coming out shortly that will support Nessus 4.2.2.
