Same issue. Started last night for me, took forever to update and start the server and tonight same thing, except it won’t update and server stays down.Hope it will be fixed soon!

Cheers!

Due to the fact that many routers drop ICMP could you please check:

 nc -6 feed.community.greenbone.net 873

Hi,

Still I am unable to update the feed. I think still the below error persists.

rsync: failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net (45.135.106.142): Connection refused (111)
rsync: failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net (2a0e:6b40:20:106:20c:29ff:fe67:cbb5): Network is unreachable (101)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(127) [Receiver=3.1.3]

Kindly help me out for getting this sorted out.

Hi any update on this? Still can’t connect to the feeds.

Thank you.

Thank you.

I saw something about setting SYN Cookies.

Did that, but still doesn’t work so I was wondering. I guess will have to wait. Some forums were advising this:

clone once a day the RSYNC Repo, and setup you system with environment for COMMUNITY_CERT_RSYNC_FEED,
COMMUNITY_SCAP_RSYNC_FEED,
COMMUNITY_GVMD_DATA_RSYNC_FEED
to your local clone.

But isn’t the rsync repo the one that is having trouble?

Thanks!

Hi there,
i am pretty newbie, just had my first installation of community edition and i am running into the feeds update issue.
I will list what i did, hopefully you can give me a feedback. Thanks in advance already :slight_smile:
(i took out the dots in the links, i can only post 2 links as new user)

Ubuntu Server 20 04

  • apt install openvas

  • openvasmd --create-user=admin --new-password=admin

  • sysctl -n net ipv4 tcp_syncookies

  • systemctl enable rsync service
    Synchronizing state of rsync.service with SysV service script with /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install.
    Executing: /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable rsync

  • systemctl start rsync service

Do i have to do something else, what i am missing please? I tried to have a look for solutions on the other topics about the feeds, but if i am still stuck, it is because i might not get the whole point :slight_smile:
Thanksss

Do you run behind a shared network ? What is your source-IP ? Keep in mind more then 10 tries and your IP need to pause for 24h.

Hi All,

I’m facing an issue while updating the feeds. Could you please help me to resolve this issue?
I’m facing this issue for the last 7days.

rsync: [Receiver] failed to connect to feed.community.greenbone.net (2a0e:6b40:20:106:20c:29ff:fe7f:d2ae): Network is unreachable (101)

That post should help you:

Hi. I think that it makes sense to have a limit rate (and thanks for the transparency), although I am sure we got our public IP blocked (we get a connection refused) and we never ran the gvm update command or a netcat to test the connection more than 10 times in one minute. I’m hoping this can be resolved soon…Thanks.

Hi Lukas, Thank you for your help!
My issue got resolved now.

It works now,
