What is the fastest tool to sync http listening openvas-nvt-feed


#1

I have a huge number of files listening on http server.

wget -m http://mirror.ufs.ac.za/misc/openvas-nvt-feed/

However, it is taking so much time to sync and download new files.

Are there any alternative which I can use and it will be faster than wget?

Please use RSYNC with feed.community.greenbone.net this will do a delta transfer and only sync the changes. WGET from this mirror is not supported by us and and service is delivered from a 3rd party.

rsync rsync://feed.community.greenbone.net/ should do the trick.

You need to allow RSYNC protocol by your firewall TCP/873 to the feed server.
