I have encountered the following problem with TNI 2 on a Windows XP machine:
Whenever I scan a Linux system, the scanner attempts to create a temporary file in
c:\Documents\[Username]\Local Settings\Temp\TNITEMPSCANDIR\*
with a filename containing a question mark (?).
Naturally, Windows refuses to create such a file, since question marks are not allowed in filenames.
When scanning a Windows PC (the one I'm working on, since the rest of the network runs Linux), no such error occurs.

System setup is as follows:
1 Windows XP machine running TNI 2.0.4 Trial Version (won't upgrade to full unless it's working, obviously)
1 Centos 6 server
15 Centos 6 clients

All machines are successfully detected, and the scan runs up to 95% before quitting. I used the root account on the Linux machines, since Centos doesn't normally allow sudo. On the Windows machine I use an administrator account.

Thanks in advance,

*That's probably not the correct name, I use the German version of XP, where all the paths have neat German names, which makes googling the error so much easier ....

Please download the updated Linux scanner and unpack the archive to the program's installation directory (overwrite existing file):
Then try to scan your Linuxes again. Les us know the results.
