I installed nessus from rpm's ..
including dependencies

then i registered & did a update of the plugins.
then ran nessus-adduser
admin ..

& when i try to connect using a WX windows client it gives me a wrong username & password

i tried adding username password as
default allow
in /etc/nessus/nessusd.conf

but no help.

Any clues.?
