I’m using 20.08, and as some other have posted, I get connection refused.
The resolution for the other threads was that the version was outdated, but I’m using pretty much up to date version:
greenbone-feed-sync --type GVMD_DATA --version
(note that I have to type the --type parameter, the program insist for that param to be there, even if displaying only the version, another issue… not related to the subject here)
So, I get the following error:
greenbone-feed-sync --type GVMD_DATA
rsync: failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net (18.104.22.168): Connection refused (111)
rsync: failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net (2a0e:6b40:20:106:20c:29ff:fe67:cbb5): Cannot assign requested address (99)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(127) [Receiver=3.1.3]
I know that the feed server is in the process of being relocated, so it may be a DNS issue (the address above is what I get with both my provider DNS and with google DNS using nslookup).
Hopefully this can be resolved soon, as I’m doing a new installation of gvm and it’s pretty much unusable (can do only the built-in scans, no vulnerability assessment).
