    If i enter the command $PATH i see that /opt/nessus/bin and /opt/nessus/sbin are in there. If i edit /etc/profile is see the following text:

    ---------------------------------------------
    # Set the default system $PATH:
    PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/java/bin:/opt/nessus/bin:/opt/nessus/sbin:/pentest/forensics/sleuthkit/bin"
    ---------------------------------------------

    So the paths should be alright in my case. My point that i don't know sure whether 2.2.6 is running now or 3.0.1.

    I tested the following:
    - /opt/nessus/sbin/nessusd -d
    - /etc/rc.d/init.d/nessusd -d

    Bought gives the following output:
    -------------------------------------------------
    This is Nessus 2.2.6 for Linux 2.6.12.2
    compiled with gcc version 3.3.5
    Current setup :
    nasl : 2.2.6
    libnessus : 2.2.6
    SSL support : enabled
    SSL is used for client / server communication
    Running as euid : 0
    -------------------------------------------------

    I think the output of "/opt/nessus/sbin/nessusd -d" should be version 3.0.1?

    How do i check now which version is running

    For this installation procedure to work
    - Back|Track needs to be installed on harddisk;
    - you should login as root.

    Step 1:
    Download the following packeges from Nessus.org to /tmp on your harddisk:
    - Nessus-3.0.1-fc4.i386.rpm (server)
    - NessusClient-1.0.0.RC4.tar (client)

    Step 2: remove Nessus 2.2.6
    - cd /usr/local/sbin
    - ./uninstall-nessus (remove everything)

    Step 3: Install Nessus 3.0.1
    Convert the server packege to .tgz with the following command:
    - cd /tmp
    - rpm2tgz Nessus-3.0.1-fc4.i386.rpm (now you have Nessus-3.0.1-fc4.i386.tgz in /tmp)
    - pkginstall Nessus-3.0.1-fc4.i386.tgz (or use pkgtool command to select the package)

    Step 4: Install Nessus 1.0 0 RC4
    - cd /tmp
    - tar -zxf /tmp/NessusClient-1.0.0.RC4.tar.gz
    - cd NessusClient-1.0.0.RC4/
    - ./configure
    - make
    - make install (the following message appears " NessusClient has been sucessfully installed")

    Step 5: Configure Nessus
    - check with the $PATH command if "/opt/nessus/bin" and "/opt/nessus/sbin" are configured
    - if not, add "/opt/nessus/bin" and "/opt/nessus/sbin" in "/etc/profile"
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    # Set the default system $PATH:
    PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/java/bin:/opt/nessus/bin:/opt/nessus/sbin:/pentest/forensics/sleuthkit/bin"
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - copy all libraries from "/opt/nessus/lib/" to "/lib"
    - cd /lib
    - ln libdb-4.2.so libdb-4.3.so
    - edit "/etc/ld.so.conf" and add the following path: "/opt/nessus/lib/
    - cd /etc/rc.d
    - ldconfig
    - cd /opt/nessus/sbin
    - nessus-mkcert
    CA certificate life time in days [1460]: 1460
    Server certificate life time in days [365]: 365
    - nessus-adduser
    Login : root
    Authentication (pass/cert) [pass] : pass
    Login password : toor
    Login password (again) : toor
    - the following message appears: "Enter the rules for this user, and hit ctrl-D once you are done : (the user can have an empty rules set)"
    - ctrl-D
    - Is that ok ? (y/n) [y] y

    Step 6: Run Nessus
    - nessusd
    - NessusClient

    Most commands, support man pages, and also have a command line help option, such as "nessusd --help". "nessusd -v" will tell you which version the executable is. The 3.0.1 version should indicate 3.0.1.

    Do the BackTrack Nessus scripts still work with Nessus 3.0?

    The scripts seem to work but Nessus itself doesn't seem to work for me unfortunately.

    I started over and now nessusd works correctly. Before it wasn't scanning targets. It would say all the targets are dead and the nessus.dump file had something like iface_get(eth0) failed.
    The only other problem I have now is this:
    http://mail.nessus.org/pipermail/nes.../msg00124.html
    When I use the nessus client (both RC1 and RC4) and I switch the Trused CA option in the GUI to use /opt/nessus/com/nessus/CA/cacert.pem instead of /usr/local/com/nessus/CA/cacert.pem then I don't get the errors anymore.

    Default nessus-update-plugins

    I followed these steps to the dot, when I use nessus-fetch or nessus-fetch with my register ID I get

    nessus-fetch: error while loading shared libraries: libnessus.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

    Anyone running into this same problem?

    Did it by using the full path /opt/nessus/bin/nessus-fetch --register etc.
