[Openvas-discuss] Scanning from OpenVAS Client on OpenVAS 4

I've installed the OpenVAS4
I'd like to try scan with the OpenVAS Client. It is written on the INSTALL file on openvas-scanner directory:
4) Once the scanner has started, openvas-manager can act as a client and control
the scanner. The actual user interfaces (for example GSA, GSD or CLI-OMP)
will only interact with the manager, not the scanner.
It is still possible to use the latest version of the old OpenVAS-Client as
direct client application for the scanner but this will circumvent the whole
vulnerability management storage and processes.
So, for the quick way I installed the openvas-client package
# apt-cache showpkg openvas-client
Then I installed it
# apt-get install openvas-client
Start the openvas scanner daemon
Loading the plugins... (200.. 20656)
All plugins loaded
Start the openvas-client
But when I tried to connect to the localhost server port 9390, the dialog box showed this:
Could not open a connection to localhost
Should I install the openvas-manager first to scan with latest version of OpenVAS-client?
