[Openvas-discuss] set up remote scanner.

The how-to in the blog post below didn't work out for me with OpenVAS 9 on
Ubuntu 16.04 (didn't really investigate why). But a new OpenVAS 9 install
from the sources on Debian 8.9 Jessie did the trick.

Also, if you follow these steps on Jessie, don't get fooled by the 'Error
500' message when checking the distant scanner: as long as you provide the
right cert, the task with the OMP slave scanner will run just fine.
