If you are working with multiple Nexpose vulnerability scanners it makes sense to want to generate a bunch of Nexpose Scan Templates on one Nexpose Seurity Console and distribute to a bunch of other Nexpose Security Console’s. There is not much documentation I could find on doing this so luckily it is fairly easy. Follow the instructions below to first export a Nexpose Scan Template from a Nexpose Security Console and then import a Nexpose Scan Template to another Nexpose Security Console. The scan templates are stored as XML so exporting consists of copying the XML file from the server running Nexpose to either your local machine or to another server running Nexpose.
Most people will likely find this on their own but since I couldn’t find a specific restart button within the Nexpose Security Console web interface I figured it would be worth noting in a short article. The below details describe how to restart the Nexpose Security Console via the Nexpose Security Console web interface.
Earlier tonight while working on a Windows 7 Ultimate server I needed to reboot the computer to complete some changes made on the server but the Restart/Shutdown capabilities are removed from the start menu for security reasons. Luckily you can still easily reboot Windows 7 remotely when connected via Remote Desktop using the instructions below.
Recently I needed to modify a MySQL database from a latin1 character set to a utf8 character set which I may write an article on later however when importing the MySQL dumped data back into a new database I received an error complaining about the packet size. This can easily be worked around using the information below.
If you you receive the following with a Ruby on Rails site:
Ruby On Rails Error:
Only specific requests are allowed.
- Only get, head, post, put, and delete requests are allowed.
The solution is to kill existing web/app server processes and restart the web/app server. Then, reload the page.
