Problems to download PDF GVM11


I made an installation of OpenVas (GVM) in the new realease 2020.4 of Kali Linux, information about the release:
Greenbone Vulnerability Manager 9.0.1
Manager DB revision 221
Copyright © 2010-2017 Greenbone Networks GmbH
License GPLv2 +: GNU GPL version 2 or later

I managed to do all the scan part I needed, but when I click to download the pdf reports, I get a timeout error and I can't generate them.

Error follows:
A timeout for the request to url -9163-406186ea4fc5 & filter = apply_overrides% 3D0% 20levels% 3Dhml% 20rows% 3D-1% 20min_qod% 3D70% 20first% 3D1% 20sort-reverse% 3Dseverity% 20notes% 3D1% 20overrides% 3D1 occurred.

The Web GUI has a default timeout of 15 minutes. Sometimes the exporting of reports takes longer. We are also not sure if an additional bug is causing an earlier timeout. That’s why we advise to set the state “webtimeout” to the maximal value of 1440 minutes if problems with the timeout show up.
Please let me know if that solved your problem.

Where does one set the webtimeout?

I’m using Greenbone Vulnerability Manager 21.4.4 under docker (Docker Hub)
