Install Nessus Agents
This section describes how to install a Nessus Agent on the following operating systems:
Once installed, Nessus Agents are linked to Nessus Manager or Tenable.io.
- Nessus Agents are not available for use with Nessus Professional.
- Nessus Agents can only be installed after the installation of Nessus Manager, but can be linked to Tenable.io without future setup in Tenable.io.
- Nessus Agents are downloaded from the Nessus Agents Download Page.
- Before you start the Agent installation process, you will first retrieve the Nessus Agent Linking Key from within the Nessus Manager or Tenable.io interface.
- Linked agents will automatically download plugins from the manager upon connection; this process can take several minutes and is required before an agent will return scan results.
