    Here are my openvas notes. Not sure if it will help. Did you run the setup and make the cert first? Not sure if it matters or not...

    Notes:
    * openvas-setup (this will setup openvas and run openvas-mkcert and add user)
    * openvas-nvt-sync (optionally - if you have internet connection, download latest plugins)
    * openvasd -D (run OpenVAS server, ignore the missing inc files warning, we're still building free replacements)
    * OpenVAS-Client (run OpenVAS Client)

    Maybe the service isnt started?
    Run rsync -daemon
    And then run the update again.

    If that doesnt work, see if you can telnet into rsync.openvas.org just to verify access.

    Sorry, I don't know why I said just telnet. Put port 21 after it to do a ftp connect:

    telnet rsync.openvas.org 21

    For what it's worth, I just verified that with backtrack 4 pre final using these instructions the sync works for me.
    OpenVAS - OpenVAS - Open Vulnerability Assessment System Community Site

    Not sure if it matters, for the user I'm using 'root'.
