In OpenVAS-4 a user can only see his own reports.  OpenVAS-5 introduces the
"observer" feature, where a user can let others see his tasks.

GSA, GSD and any other OMP client all simply show the same central data
that sits on the Manager.  If you are logged in as the same user you should
see the same thing in all the clients.

The old openvas-client talks directly to the Scanner and stores the reports
on the client side.

The OpenVAS versions shipped with Debian are way old.  Debian packages the
plugins in a package, instead of getting them from the feed.

Newer packages are available listed on the website.
