the command get_tasks was executed without problems, but if i try the  
get_reports command - it throws: Failed to read response.

my goal is to get the number of vulunabilities in each category for a  
specified target by its target_id. is there a possibility to get this  
information over the openvas manager via omp? or to get the latest  
report for a target_id?

thanks in advance...
