Nessus install notes on FreeBSD

Misc Notes.


To bring up the text based installer


Type SysInstall 


I’m posting this as a reference to get nessus 2.2.10 installed.
 
 pre-req’s are
 openssl
 bison
 ftp.gtk.com glib-1.2.8.tar.gz
 ftp.gtk.com gtk+-1.2.9.tar.gz
 
 then download nessus from http://www.nessus.org run
 
 sh nessus-installer.sh takes about 30 minutes on 450 mhz.
 
 
 Congratulations ! Nessus is now installed on this host
 
 . Create a nessusd certificate using /usr/local/sbin/nessus-mkcert
 . Add a nessusd user use /usr/local/sbin/nessus-adduser
 . Start the Nessus daemon (nessusd) use /usr/local/sbin/nessusd -D
 . Start the Nessus client (nessus) use /usr/local/bin/nessus
 . To uninstall Nessus, use /usr/local/sbin/uninstall-nessus
