hi matthew,

the communication over omp with the manager works.
my problem still the communication between the manager and the scanner.
when i start the manager i get an error and the log shows a  
authentification failure. i used the gsa to create a task, but i  
couldn't start it.

by the way - is it necessary to install the openvas administrator, if  
i want to use the full greenbone security agent?
