High Nessus Plugin ID 108714


Previously open ports are now closed or filtered.


Interference from either the network or the host did not allow the scan to fulfill the PCI DSS scan validation requirements. This report is insufficient to certify this server. There may be a firewall, IDS or other software blocking Nessus from scanning.


- Adjust Nessus scan settings to improve performance.
- Whitelist the Nessus scanner for any IDS or Firewall which may be blocking the scan.
