I recently installed openvas9 following this guide. I can log into the web interface on port 4000 just fine, and I ran a scan on my metasploitable VM for testing, and it seems good. Now I wanted to import the results into metasploit.
The issue is that the service openvas-manager to which the openvas plugin of metasploit connects does use a unix-socket file instead of a listening port.
If I run
sudo openvasmd --port=9390 -a 127.0.0.1 -f, then msf connects just fine to that instance.
I want to add the listening address and port in addition to the unix socket.
