Thanks. Assuming you meant "Port scanners," nmap's already there according
to the Greenbone screen:

  Config: 	Full and fast
  Family: 	Port scanners
  Network Vulnerability Tests
  Name 	OID 	Risk 	CVSS 	Timeout 	Prefs 	Action
  Nmap (NASL wrapper) 	High 	7.5 	default 	20 	Details

It was the "Full and fast" scan that didn't show any ports, even though nmap
run by itself on that VM quickly and accurately does.
