For customers who desire to install Rapid7's NeXpose on the Pwn Pro Plus, please perform the following steps:

IMPORTANT: The ability to install/use Rapid7's NeXpose is only possible with the Pwn Pro Plus.

  1. Use SSH and login to the sensor using the pwnie user account.
  2. Next, type sudo su and press Enter, then re-type the password to become superuser.
  3. Next, ensure the sensor is capable of acquiring updates, is up-to-date and running the latest Pwnix Release. See support articles if necessary.
  4. From a different system, go to and download the “Linux 64-Bit” installation package of Rapid7 NeXpose.  Afterwards transfer the installation package to the Pwn Pro using a USB stick, SCP, WinSCP, or other file transfer method(s).
  5. After the update has completed and you are returned to a # prompt, change directories to where the installation package is located, then type chmod +x NeXposeSetup-Linux64.bin and press Enter to change permissions of the file and make it executable.
  6. Next, type ./NeXposeSetup-Linux64.bin –c and press Enter to begin the process of installation on the Pwn Pro.
  7. Upon completion of the installation process, from a different system, open a web browser and go to https://x.x.x.x:3780 replacing x.x.x.x with the IP address of the Pwn Pro Plus sensor.
  8. Once connected to the NeXpose UI, login using the account specified during installation, then proceed to configure as desired.
