[Plugins-writers] no results on plugin 20008

Greetings all,

I appear to be getting no results on the nessus plugin 20008 for 
MS05-051 (network-based check).  I've run it against a large (class C) 
group of hosts and got nothing, then ran it against a VM system I've got 
running insufficiently-patched Win2K with no luck.

Some troubleshooting indicates it fails at its first "if (!port)" for 
the known unpatched 2K box.  Is it relying solely on the presence of 
port 593?

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

As a side note, since 20008 is part of the direct feed, how much of it 
is ok to ask about publicly? Should I be sending requests to for plugins 
that are still only on the direct feed directly to Tenable?
