CE GDC 4.2.20 seems to have installed properly. Bridged network inf.
network nodes including openvas and host
virtual box on Windows10
NVT etc downloaded.
regardless of the target created: scan using various options including discovery: no results. I cannot work out why
I do not yet have an evaluation key - would this be sufficient to explain my lack of success?
Thanks for your informative answer.
Suddenly I began to see results! Right after I installed wireshark on the host. Perhaps wireshark/wincap is the equivalent of ncap which I read somewhere is required - I had assumed all requirements are installed with the download…
This note may be useful for windows folk kicking of an installation.
the GCE provides all requirements for a successful scan out of the box. There are no additional packages / installations required to get scans to work besides a successful first sync of the feed as explained above.
