View Full Version : [ubuntu] OpenVAS-client

August 24th, 2009, 05:43 PM
Hi all, not sure if this is a good place to start but I'm having problems using OpenVAS and getting my client to connect to the OpenVAS server. Note both the client and server are on the same system using 9.04.

I'm having trouble getting the client to connect to the server.

Client version is 2.0.3 and I'm using Ubuntu 9.04

After providing credentials, it tries to establish the connection but returns the following:

Invalid PLUGIN_INFO response from server


Error while updating the cached plugin information


Login failed

I was able to connect initially but after updating with openvas-nvt-sync, client connection fails every time.

Is there a cache somewhere that isn't getting cleared, I'm at a loss and fairly new to Linux.

If there is a better forum for this question, please let me know and I'll go there.
