Please have a look at the logs, for openvasmd it should be at
<installdir>/var/log/openvas/openvasmd.log (typically <installdir> is at
BTW, I found it most convenient to start the daemons with:
sudo openvassd -p 9391
sudo openvasmd --otp
sudo gsad -p 8080 --http-only
Use "ps -efl | grep" openvas to see if the daemons are running.
After starting the daemons you can connect via browser to port 8080 or
OpenVAS-Client to port 9391 or by using one of the other tools like
gsa-desktop or omp.
