Nessus locking user bin

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I am just starting up Nessus and am doing testing against some nodes.
But I have this nagging problem. One of the plugins is locking the bin
account and I am having problems locating this plugin.

Can anyone help me here? I need to know either how to disable it or
change the amount of times it tries.

Do you actually log in as "bin" for some reason?

Sorry for the delay in the reply.

I do not use bin to login. I have created a user account and during the
scanning process the target machines bin account gets locked out.

Now of course before i can move this into production I have to take
care of this issue.

$ nessus-adduser [insert_username_here]

why are you authenticating as "bin"?
