    Are you sure that networking is working. Make sure of this first.
    Next make sure the address and port are correct. This sounds like a networking issue really. If that does not work then you could try deleting the user
    #/etc/openvas/openvasd.users
    should be the user directory. If it is not ( I am not able to look right now) then use find / openvasd.users to locate it and then delete the user and make a new one with openvas-useradd

    Again delete as a last recourse. Since you are having the issue with both nessus and openvas this sounds like you are having an issue connecting to the servers and that is indicative of a networking issue or pebkac.

    So did you start the openvas server ?
    Adding nessus to /etc/init.d is making the server deamon run at startup.

    Ok wait.. Post all the command that you are using to start Openvas.
    From the time you start a shell to where the problem starts .

    The two command was enough solved the nessus problem. When i try to start openvas server Bysudo/etc/int.d/openvas start then the output command not found.
    Perhaps, I do not know how to start openvas server.

    Oh yes,yestarday again loged in openvas in localhost when i added new user.the command was
    1.sudo openvas-adduser
    and i added also rule:
    2.deny 192.168.1.0/24
    default accept
    after these command the openvas loged in. But when i try to log today the same problem that openvas can not login as localhost

    Perhaps it is openvas server start problem. But i can not understand which command need to start openvas server.

    Back track and you are all our freind. I respect with my heart to Back track Devoloper,member,all users and special respect who are helping here to solve problem.
    Thank you.

    I made 2 videos on using openvas in BT it is in the video section. Get it, watch and learn.
    You are doing it wrong. Also you need to be root not using sudo.
