 I can confirm that this isn't the case..  You install nessusd on the 
computer you want the scan to originate from.   Then you can run the 
nessus client from any machine, connecting to the nessusd.  

 For EOF problems, have you installed nessus-plugins?  Nessus isn't very
useful without them. :)
