Any Help?
Kindest Regards.

I can ping to my local network and internet, with the root user and the gvm user wihtout problems.

Sounds like openvas isn’t launched by ospd-openvas as root. The docs here has some notes on the root user:

Hi! Thanks for your answer.

Your are right, i already have the visudo with the user correctly write.

gvm ALL = NOPASSWD: /opt/gvm/sbin/openvas

But not updated my secure_path with the correct prefix :frowning:

Thanks for your help!!!
