I have downloaded Arachni package. It is said in the README file to run bin/arachni_web to access to web interface of this scanner.

I run it but no web page appears. I just see these lines:

>> Thin web server (v1.5.1 codename Straight Razor)
>> Maximum connections set to 1024
>> Listening on, CTRL+C to stop

and then nothing happens.

What is the problem?

You've started a web server listening on port 9292, that's what the output says. Now you need to connect to it with a web client (browser) on that port. Try with http://localhost:9292, if you're accessing on the same computer you're running your server on, or replace localhost with the IP address on which the server is running (after making sure you're not firewalling selected port, in your case 9292).

  • wow,thank you. is it a good scanner? – hd. Jun 9 '13 at 3:39
  • @hd. - It will most certainly have your basic needs covered, possibly more. By the way, your question is slightly off-topic as it's not really security related, but about use of a security tool, which IMO is well covered in manuals and online documentation, so not even a good question for Super User on grounds of not much research being done on your part before asking the question. Since it wasn't much of a bother posting an answer, and it didn't really fit in the comments - well, I did. But I wouldn't be too surprised, if it will eventually be closed as either off-topic or not constructive. ;) – TildalWave Jun 9 '13 at 3:49
