    Default Need help with NessusClient

    When i try to connect to the nessus server, I get an error message saying "could not open connection wtih localhost" and before I rebooted, it was fine. I ran the ldconfig or something that I read I was supposed to run before I run after a reboot. Any help?

    Try /opt/nessus/sbin/nessusd -D to start the daemon manually...

    Same thing. I even went through all the steps again to configure it properly. I'm thinking it's just some stupid thing I forgot to do, haha

    So the daemon starts properly (you can see it via "ps -ef|grep nessusd")? Are using the correct port on the client? Are you using the correct username/password on the client?

    hmm, after I ran ps -ef|grep nessusd, it started up fine. Does that do something to the program?
