Install the Secure Relay (Nessus Agent)
The following procedure installs the Secure Relay using Tenable Nessus Agent.
Before you start
Check that you have downloaded and installed Nessus Agent.
Note: The Tenable Nessus Agent installation program asks for an Agent Key. This key is not required for the Secure Relay feature.
- Meet the necessary prerequisites and have the required linking key as described in Secure Relay.
To install the Secure Relay:
On a machine hosting Nessus Agent and acting as a Relay, open an administrator command prompt window in the Nessus Agent directory (c:\Program Files\Tenable\Nessus Agent) and type the following command:CopySecure Relay Installation
nessuscli install-relay --linking-key=<Relay Linking Key>
Replace <Tenable Identity Exposure Relay Linking Key> with the value you copied previously from your Tenable Identity Exposure instance.
The installation begins. It requires a few minutes to run connectivity checks and the installation process.
When the installation completes successfully, it shows a message that the Relay is running on the host machine.
In Tenable Identity Exposure, click System > Relay Management. The newly installed Relay appears in the list of Relays with the identifier shown in the installation window.
