Hello,

Here nothing do with NVT.  As it looks like issue with an server 
configuration.
Please google exact error message along with status code. You might find 
the solution
for proper configuration.

If you don't find , request you to send the exact error message with 
error code.

Thanks,
Antu Sanadi
