Setting Up Nessus in Windows 7

My old college professor made a video for his website Besides the video, he has lots of cool security stuff up there. It really is a great resource for network security.

Anyway, back to this video he made. Earlier this year he made a video on how to setup Nessus on your network for free. He did it using Windows 7 Beta.

If you don't know what Nessus is, here is a description from Wikipedia:

In computer security, Nessus is a proprietary comprehensive vulnerability scanning software. It is free of charge for personal use in a non-enterprise environment. Its goal is to detect potential vulnerabilities on the tested systems

As you will see installation of Nessus in Windows is fairly simple. Take a look:

Pretty simple right? Do you use Nessus already? What other security/auditing tools do you use regularly in your network? Let us know in the comments!
