Remote Link

The Remote Link page displays options that allow you to link your Nessus scanner to a licensed Nessus Manager, Tenable.io, or Tenable.io on-prem.

If your scanner is already linked to SecurityCenter, you can unlink by toggling the On switch to Off. You can then link the scanner to Tenable.io, Nessus Manager, or Tenable.io on-prem, but you cannot relink to SecurityCenter from the interface.
