nessus is for scaning other computers for sercurity risk.. Its all websites i was using microsoft for an example.

I just restarted the machine now connects to websites fine.. I guess nessus must block port 80?

Along the lines of the discussion that scdark started in relation to connecting to the web and port 80, I am having a similar problem. I am new to linux and may be doing something really silly, but naturally any help will be greatly appreciated. I have suse installed on a machine that previously had windows on it. I have checked the hardware, and from what I can tell, the hardware is compatible with Linux. Linux was installed by a friend who knew what he was doing. However, I cannot connect to the net, as the error on port 80 message keeps coming up. I'd love to know what that means and so know where to start tackling it. Interestingly, or confusingly, it has connected a few times, very briefly to a webpage, so I can't understand why it would work, albeit it briefly, at times. I have checked that the connection to the router is working by putting a trusted machine on and it connects just fine, so it's not the line/router.
