Hi

I installed to hard drive the latest Backbox, updated the installation with
the procedure at
http://www.openvas.org/install-packages.html#openvas_debian_obs, did the
post installation script and my login to the web interface is still broken.

The openvas-check-setup script says "It seems like your OpenVAS-6
installation is OK."

But when I connect via Firefox, "Firefox can't establish a connection to
the server at 127.0.0.1:9392."

I also get this error  when I restart the services
[i] Starting OpenVAS services...

Starting OpenVAS Scanner: openvassd.
Starting OpenVAS Manager: openvasmd.
Starting OpenVAS Administrator: openvasad.
Starting Greenbone Security Assistant: ERROR.

I'm not sure if it is referring to this entry in /var/log/openvasmd.log

lib auth:   INFO:2013-12-03 23h23.39 utc:21393: Authentication
configuration not found.
