Hi,

I have few questions regarding NIKTO and Nessus.

NIKTO
---------
I want to use NIKTO from a windows XP machine to explore vulnerabilities in 
my IIS 5.0 Server running on another windows XP machine. I have downloaded 
the latest vesion from the CIRT website but i have not been able to install 
it on windows. Any idea how can i install it on windows?

NESSUS
-----------
When i use Nessus to scan my system, it gives me a list of the open ports on 
my server system. I want to check if my program running as a service is 
having any buffer overflow or not. Does anybody have an idea from where can 
i get the plugin for buffer overflow.


Thanks,
Gaurav Gupta
