I have 2 machines: One with Ubuntu Linux Server and the other with the more common Ubuntu Linux. I have installed Nessus server and the client with packages from nessus.org
I have confirmed that the server has started:
Every time I connect, I get the message "It was not possible to connect to the remote host - make sure the host IP and port are correct and that the Nessus Server is running".
Does anyone have any ideas for resolving this? Thanks.
