Hello
I am using OpenVas tool to check web application vulnerability. Now I am trying to import config file to configure the web application attack as mentioned in the below link
http://www.greenbone.net/learningcenter/task_webappscan.html

But while I try to import I get the below error
Internal error: import_config_omp:7910 (GSA 5.0.1)

An internal error occurred while importing a config. The schedule remains the same. Diagnostics: Failure to send command to manager daemon.

I read that Green Bone/ OpenVas does the scanning using w3af libraries. I did install the same, but still getting the issue.

Please help

TIA

Can you help with your system versions and detail a bit on what you have installed?
Named function import_config_omp is from Greeenbone Security Manager - nothing to do with OpenVas or w3af - a product that costs in range of 10000...100000 $/€
Since you paid that please be so kind and ask their 24x7 support on why their stuff is broken.

The same was issue with the linux version. The import was not working due to some missing libraries. I got Kali linux installed and configured OpenVas. Now the import is working fine.

I am accepting my solution as I carried out the RND and found out the missing links. Also installed Kali Linux to resolve the issue.
