Openvas not in Kali

openvas seems to no longer be included with Kali, at least not version I got (the rolling version), which also seems to not want to work with Tor - I’ve spent many day fighting with it.

That shouldn’t be the case. I will check that.

You wouldn’t really want to run Tor on Kali unless it was for testing Tor as its not a locked down OS and runs as root unless you change it. For pen testing and Tor/anonymity try Parrot OS.
