ubuntu script

Can I ask, (ubuntu/linux beginner), this site:
http://www.openvas.org/setup-and-start.html

Asks me to download a script:
https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/tools/openvas-check-setup

My question is, from firefox, a) how do I save it, as what (file extension etc), and then from the command terminal, how do I run it? Do I need to navigate to the folder its saved in as you would on a windows command prompt, i.e. CD command? Whats the ubuntu equivalent?

And it doesnt like it.

root@ubuntu:~# webget webget https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/tools/openvas-check-setup
No command 'webget' found, did you mean:
 Command 'debget' from package 'debian-goodies' (main)
 Command 'debget' from package 'debget' (universe)
 Command 'webgen' from package 'webgen0.4' (universe)
 Command 'webgen' from package 'webgen' (universe)
 Command 'webgen' from package 'webgen0.5' (universe)
webget: command not found

Dear Pma111,

It's wget you are right.

With wget you download the file "openvas-check-setup" that is a shell script file (.sh) you don't need to have extension like Windows to run it. This file will be saved from where you run the command, then for example if you are currently in your /home/pma111 folder it will be saved there.

After you only need to set the execution right to the file by doing :
chmod +x openvas-check-setup

And for run it after :
./openvas-check-setup

Hi,

The problem with the site is it presents an invalid certificate ( certificate with wrong  common name) . So that when I tried with wget I've got this error:

wget https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/tools/openvas-check-setup

So you'd better try it with this instead:

# wget --no-check-certificate https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/tools/openvas-check-setup

Open in new window


Cheers,
K.

The Certificate eror is why can not you get the file. The client aborts with invalid certificate error before it downloads. For the rest you can follow MadShiva's comment. Since this is not a windows system you don2t need definite file extensions. The file you get is a script file so when you assign execution permission it should go and do what is intended for.

Cheers,

But don't forget that this script must be run after you've setup openVAS over your system. So please install the binary for your system here:

http://www.openvas.org/install-packages.html

Select the binary for Ubuntu and install it.

Cheers,
K.
