OpenVas Unbuntu 18.04.1 LTS OpenVas9

Unread post by thamilt »


I am having trouble getting the OpenVAS Scanner to start. It seems to time out.

I am starting with a fresh up to date version of Ubuntu 18.04.01

I can install openvas via the cli ... versions are as follows:
Greenbone Security Assistant 7.0.2
OpenVAS Manager 7.0.2
OpenVAS Scanner 5.1.1
OMP Command Line Interface 1.4.5

If I run openvassd -f I get something like.

Code: Select all

(openvassd:7206): lib  kb_redis-CRITICAL **: 16:43:10.052: get_redis_ctx: redis connection error: Connection refused

(openvassd:7206): lib  kb_redis-CRITICAL **: 16:43:10.053: redis_new: cannot access redis at '/tmp/redis.sock'
I have the feeling I am fighting some kind of configuration issue with the stupid socket /tmp/redis.sock (which is present)

What do I tweak?
