Install PVS on the NAT Gateway

Before You Begin

The PVSPassive Vulnerability Scanner installer package for your NAT gateway instance's platform can be downloaded from the Tenable Support Portal.


  1. Follow the instructions for using SSH to connect to an Azure Linux instance. Once you can connect to your instance using SSH, you can use scp to copy the PVS installer package to the home directory in your NAT gateway instance.

  2. Log in to your NAT gateway instance.

  3. Once logged into your NAT gateway instance, install PVS.

    After PVS is installed and running on the NAT gateway, you may access the PVS web front end by navigating to https://<external IP address of nat-gateway>:8835 in your Web browser.
