Backtrack 4 Beta and Nessus 4.0.0

I recently installed Nessus 4.0.0 on a vmware install of BackTrack 4 Beta. Below are the steps I took.

Download the following linux packages from the nessus website.


You will also need to register in order to obtain the activation key.

Before installing we will need to install some missing dependencies

apt-get install libqt4-core libqt4-gui libqtcore4 libqt4-network libqt4-script libqt4-xml libqt4-dbus libqt4-test libqtgui4 libqt4-svg libqt4-opengl libqt4-designer libqt4-assistant

Install the server.

# dpkg -i Nessus-4.0.0-ubuntu804_i386.deb

Configure the certificate

# /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-mkcert

Add the admin user

# /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-adduser

# /opt/nessus/bin/nessus-fetch --register 'your_registration_key'

# dpkg -i NessusClient-4.0.0-ubuntu804_i386.deb

# /etc/init.d/nessusd start

And start the client from the Menu>Intenet>NessusClient or use the CLI
