(I’m french so sorry for my english.)
I try to implement a master and slave architecture. I have created a scanner with information from my slave but when I verify the scanner, it loads continuously. I think that the issue can comes from certificates.
This is what I did concerning certificates:
I use the openvas-manage-certs on the slave and on the master.
It’s a self-signed certificate.
In the scanner configuration, I have first import the cacert from the slave and the servercert the second time. Neither of the two work.
I’m totally stuck, I don’t know what to do.
Moreover, I don’t understand why we have to use a slave’s certificat in the scanner configuration.
Thank you in advance for your help

You are likely getting an outdated end of life version. See
About the Greenbone Source Edition (GSE) category for more details about our releases.
I’m sorry but I don’t understand, what’s the difference between GVM and openvas?
If I want to use Openvas, do I have to download everything on the screen?

Yes, this are the main components you need to download and install to run the current stable and supported versions of GVM.

it seems you are missing write permissions to the file (/root/Téléchargements/…). You can add the permissions with “chmod” command.
Note: I would strongly advice against building / installing as root. You may want to have a look at following posts as well:
Use this category only if you have build GSE or components thereof from sources .

When posting you should provide information about your environment using the following template:

Was going to hold off posting here, but concerning that there are no other catagories that fits this particular topic, guess this will have to do.
In basic, what the title says. Is there any in-depth guides that describes how to build, configure, and install GSE? Trying to install GSE before has not gone well, with the NVT cache not updating correctly.
On that regard, why can’t we run “greenbone-nvt-sync” as root anymore?
With “openvas-check-setup” no longer being supported, something like th…
