I am able to run local scans using openvas 3.x from the opensuse build
service repo.

If I try to attach a remote host on my network, I get the following error:

root at w00den-server:/# openvassd -a
All plugins loaded
bind() failed : Cannot assign requested address
root at w00den-server:/#

This also happens on my main host ( attaching to my
server (, both of which are running Ubuntu.

I can however attach to just fine (openvassd -a

Has anyone run into this before?
