Preparing the OpenVAS Server

To install the WLSC, a few steps are required to be taken on the server that hosts and runs the actual scan daemon "openvasd".

It depends on the operating system where you run the OpenVAS server, how the steps are carried out technically.

  1. Install SAMBA (

    http://www.samba.org
    )

    Installation packages should be readily available for your operating system.

  2. Make sure that the binary "smbclient" in is the installation/execution path.
  3. Check the permissions of openvasd and smbclient: smbclient must be executable with the permissions of openvasd.
