Changing bathtub drain.

I have an old tub that has a 2" pipe fitting. I bought a 1 1/2" stopper and have a 2" to 1 1/2" brass bushing adapter on order. From the pics of the adapter there is nothing to grip on to tighten it. Can I just thread the new 1 1/2" into it and tighten that down? The new stopper came with a rubber gasket, should I use that or plumbers putty, or both? TIA
