After the recent update of the libmicrohttpd package, it's impossible to access GSA via HTTPS protocol (https://localhost:9392).
By applying the following updates we will force the usage of HTTP protocol (http://localhost:9392)
You have to open the configuration file:

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/default/greenbone-security-assistant
and add the following string:
Code: [Select]
HTTP_ONLY=1
We shall also modify the init script:
Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/init.d/greenbone-security-assistant
by adding after:
Code: [Select]
[ "$GSA_ADDRESS" ] && DAEMONOPTS="--listen=$GSA_ADDRESS"
the following line:
Code: [Select]
[ "$HTTP_ONLY" ] && [ "$HTTP_ONLY" = "1" ] && DAEMONOPTS="$DAEMONOPTS --http-only"
now reboot services:
Code: [Select]
sudo openvas-services restart
and open your browser on http://localhost:9392
