The following is a simple how-to guide for installing the Nessus vulnerability scanner, server daemon, and client on SuSE Linux. The instructions do not include in depth explanations as it is assumed that you are familiar with features and benefits of Nessus and have a general working knowledge of Linux.

    As with any software installation, your results may vary depending on the machine. The installation steps were conducted using the commercial version of SuSE 9.0 Professional steps were tested on a notebook, workstation, and server to insure accuracy. The one difference that may occur during your installation is that of the network card and/or Internet connection. At SiteRecon we do not use DHCP and each installation required manual setup of NIC and IP information. If you use DHCP, the network and Internet setup will differ from the instructions below.

    The installation process should be conducted using the "root" account. It is strongly suggested that your install take place on a safe non-routable network that does not have hostile traffic. Your system will be vulnerable and could easily become infected with a virus, worm, bomb, or hacked.
