I upgrade my Nessus to 3.2 and it finds Nikto now, but I'm still now convinced that Nikto runs because I can't find anything indicating Nikto in the reports. Let me know how it goes with you. Thanks.

I noticed the same thing and it appears to be an issue in the nikto plugin (14260) at least on nessus 2.2.10.

This is the message I set to nessus bug-report.

This is the error message I am getting:

Loading the plugins... 19890 (out of 20581)nessus-libraries/libnessus/store.c: /usr/lib64/nessus/plugins/nikto.nasl has a too long preference-name (69)
nikto.nasl failed to load
All plugins loaded

I use nessus 2.2.10 on gentoo.

Hello there,

I am trying to use Nikto in Nessus. So far Nessus has not been able to detect Nikto.

I am using OpenSuse 10.3, Nessus 3.0.6, Nikto 2.02. Both Nessus and Nikto run as root and Nikto is added to the root path environment. I don't see Nikto in the plugins after I restarted the server. Any help is greatly appreciated.
