[Openvas-discuss] Connect via GSA-Desktop + Question on Scan Configs

I gathered that would be the gist of how to edit a scan config as it is
sort of similar to GSAD in terms of the layout / setup...  On my particular
instance... The only buttons available on the Scan Config page are "Create"
and "Delete", even if I make my own static, blank config.  Also I ran a
test scan last night, the test came back with a "Done" status, it tells me
there is a report for the scan.... Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be
anyway to access it???  The only options in this case are seemingly to
"Start" the task or "delete" it...

First message basically means something like "query did not return
and is really more for debugging purposes than anything else. Will e.g.
happen when the GUI wants to enable you to select escalators but you do not

have any defined. Don't worry, its not an error message.

Also, do not worry about the other message. I think its just openvassd, who
a bit unpolite and quits conversations without saying good-bye.

I do not understand the point. As long as a scan config is not already used
a task (!), you can modify it. Exceptions are the pre-built scan configs
like "Full and Fast", which can never be modified.

If you want to just employ, say, NVTs from the "FTP" family, create a
empty" config, click on the edit button and add the FTP family ... (there
some other options on the edit page, refer to the help).
