    Default Nessus against a VM on the same machine

    Hello! I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum and/or section to post this, because it's not directly related to backtrack, but since there are obviously a lot of experienced people around I thought I would ask.

    I have a network with a DHCP server and a Nessus server v4.2.2 installed on a machine ( where I also run a VMWare VM running my victim OS ( with a bridged network adapter. I can ping my guest OS in the VM from the host machine and other machines in the same subnet. I can scan the host machine (where Nessus is running) and other machines on the subnet.

    The problem is when I try to scan the guest OS nothing happens. Running wireshark in the host machine reveals that no packets leave for

    Am I missing something about Nessus? Any ideas? Btw, this also happens if the VM is configured with NAT instead of bridging.
