NAC & Nessus plugins problem

Hello to all!

I have a problem with Nessus plugin installation.((

After reading Installating Guides I did not have a clear understading what files should I download. So I've got 2 files:

nessus-plugins-2.2.10.tar.gz (6507 KB)

nessus-plugins-GPL-2.2.10.tar.gz (1071 KB)

from http://www.nessus.org/download/index.php

After renaming I have tried to upload each of them by turn to the CAM under Plugin Updates. CAM says "Upload Succeeded" and still shows no plugins (Scan Setup ->Plugins).

So I can not understand what is wrong...((

Can someone share correct plugins.tar.gz file, please...???

Regards

Re: NAC & Nessus plugins problem

You must download and install the appropriate Nessus for your PC.

After you download the latest plugins from the Nessus site, in the directory (for a Windows install) c:/Program Files/Tenable/Nessus/Plugins you will have a "plugin.tar.gz" file. You must rename or copy this to "plugins.tar.gz".

Next, in the NAC Manager console, under CLEAN ACCESS -> NETWORK SCANNER -> Plugin Updates, browse to the same folder and pick the "plugins.tar.gz" file. It MUST be named exactly as shown - with the S - to work. Perform the UPLOAD. When finished navigate over to the Scan Setup tab and select All in the Show ___ Plugins dropdown. You should hae around 20,000 of them.

HTH.
