    Thanks Elazar!

    I am running OpenSSL version 0.9d 28 september 2006
    I ran twice ldconfig and I am still getting the same message.

    Please let me know if I have to check anything else.

    Try this, run:
    Code:
     ldd /opt/nessus/bin/nessus-mkcert
    It is probably looking for a missing library, ldd will tell you which one...

    I ran ldd /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-mkcert and it came back with

    not a dynamic executable

    I am using diectory sbin for executbles instead of bin. Is it ok?

    Also, there are so many lib directories, which one Nessus uses?

    Thanks for the help

    From the looks of it, I think you may have downloaded the wrong RPM from the Nessus site. What is the exact name of the package?

    I downloaded the following:

    Nessus-3.0.6-fc6.i386.rpm
    NessusClient-3.0.0.beta5-fc6.i386.rpm

    Please let me know which on is a right one.

    Or as I mentioned, beta5, and from The_Captains tutorial, Nessus-3.0.6-fc5...rpm. The RPM's are distro specific and choosing the right one(s) is/are a very critical piece of this tutorial...

    Elazar,

    Thanks! that worked like a charm. Now I got to figure how to run it. I followed your tutorial to configure it. I may have a few more questions as I started to get into it.

    Thanks again

    elazar,

    I need help with the next step after configuring per you tutorial.

    I left the rules blank during the configuration. How can I find out the different rules? Suggestion given to me during the configuration man ---- did not work.

    What steps I need to take to get started on any given day. Do I just start with NessusClient or I have to give also PATH statement and nessusd (servere),etc...

    Thanks

    If I remember correctly, the rules determine what a nessus user can and can't do. I wouldn't concern yourself with that right now. If you are new to nessus I would highly suggest you take a look at this http://www.securityfocus.com/infocus/1741 and this http://www.securityfocus.com/infocus/1753. They are a bit outdated(older version of nessus), but they should give you a good idea of how it works. In short, nessusd is the daemon that sits in the background, it daemon does all of the work . The Nessus client connects to the daemon and tells it what to do based on what you choose...
