I am receiving an "insufficient privileges" error when attempting to scan a custom linux host.
I can manually SSH into the host using the root credentials given to the scanner and view/edit any file, so I believe the user's permissions are good. I suspect that the scanner is attempting to perform a command sequence that may not be available since this is a custom modified distro. For example there is not a /root folder by default, added it but no dice.
What is the command sequence performed by the scanners to determine if the user has privileges on a unix box?
