Hi,

I've got 2 PCs running ubuntu connected to a switch and installed nessus today on one of them.I'm trying to scan the other machine for DoS & webserver attacks.The report at the end of the scan shows nothing except the list of ports(ssh,ftp,http....).I even removed the safe check option & enabled all plugins in an attempt to see whether the PC crashes,but nothing seems to happen...Could anyone whose been using nessus plz tell me what I may be doing wrong here.Is it cz both the nessus client & server r on the same machine.....

the links I followed to install & configure nessus:

A very simple nessus installation - Ubuntu Forums

Cheers
