PROBLEMS INSTALLIN OPENVAS ON CENTOS 6

Unread post by moxilas »

Hi!

I've been trying to install openvas on a centos machine and every time I run the openvas-setup I get the same error with rsync:

Step 1: Update NVT's and SCAP data
Please note this step could take some time.
Once completed, NVT's and SCAP data will be updated automatically every 24 hours

Updating NVTs....
This script synchronizes an NVT collection with the 'OpenVAS NVT Feed'.
The 'OpenVAS NVT Feed' is provided by 'The OpenVAS Project'.
Online information about this feed: 'http://www.openvas.org/openvas-nvt-feed.html'.
NVT dir: /var/lib/openvas/plugins
Will use rsync
Using rsync: /usr/bin/rsync
Configured NVT rsync feed: rsync://feed.openvas.org:/nvt-feed
rsync: failed to connect to feed.openvas.org: Connection timed out (110)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(124) [receiver=3.0.6]
Error: rsync failed. Your NVT collection might be broken now.

I've been trying to telnet feed.openvas.org and I can't, the connection is refused.
The main problem is that the setup stops here and I cannot go on. I have the firewall disabled and the proxy server.

Does anyone have the same problem?
