TasksTopUsing OpenVAS-ClientThe Main Window

The Main Window

The main window of OpenVAS-Client is split into two major sections: On the left-hand side is the treelist with an overview of the locally stored tasks, scopes and reports. On the right-hand side there is a notebook with pages for comments, options and reports. This is the place where a security scan can be configured, commented upon and its result reviewed.

When you first start OpenVAS-Client, you will see only one entry in the list: Global Settings. These settings you see on the first start-up are the default settings shipped with OpenVAS-Client. They do not cover a specific selection of plugins since a connection to an OpenVAS server is required to make a plugin selection. You can establish a connection with a server and then specify a global default plugin selection for later use.
