Openvas-manager & openvas-cli
Hi! I'm having some problems making sense of openvas-manager and openvas-cli. I've installed both of the packages from source and everything seems to have worked thus far. The problem is how to make openvas-manager start and how to use openvas-cli. The openvas-homepage didn't provide with any good examples on how to do that?

As far as I can understand the steps are:

1) Openvas-scanner
2) Openvas-manager (Openvasmd needs to create a database?)
3) Openvas-cli (omp to point on the openvasmd address?)

Any help would be appreciated =)

The OpenVAS project forked from Nessus so runs the way Nessus used to:

- install openvas-server
- configure openvas-server
- connect to openvas-server with openvas-client

I still use Nessus but the compendium seems to provide enough detail:
