Hello all,

I currently work infosec for a company and I am in charge of doing internal scanning. I am using Kali Linux and trying to run GVM (openvas). I keep getting error messages and implementing the fixes I have seen online but to no avail. The current issue I am seeing now is “rsync: {Receiver} failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net ( Connection timed out (110)”

Does anyone know a way to get this to work?


there are a lot of threads about your issue. For example here Failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net - #2 by Lukas

In 99% of all cases it’s an issue with your local network. Most likely you need to allow the rsync port (873) in your firewall.
