How can we create the setup for connecting to gvmd over a ssh connection to use gvm-cli?

Like i learned now, thats just possible if you have bought the Appliance, when youre using the GCE or the GSE you cant use the ssh connection from Greenbonel.

But you can make a normal ssh tunnel to your other system and can start there gvm-cli
(In my way its doesnt help me because i wantet to connect from check mk to greenbone, but over the ssh tunnel i dont get all variables from check_mk to greenbone)

Please get back to your packet provider (Atomic) and raise the topic there. We can´t help you here with uncoordinated integrations.


Anyway, what kind of config should be done for ssh connection?

man sshd_config :wink:

I thought it has special config in gvmd. :smile:
I will check it

It´s just a socked, resp. a file from the SSHd point of view the missing config is done via SSHd.

The SSH connection is not very special. It’s just a nice solution build into our appliances. But we are not going to give advises on howto setup this connection type.
