Maybe, but John the Ripper does not attack remote servers on its own. It expects that you provide it with password hashes that you obtain by other means. > Our Sales guy has a laptop he can't get Admin on ... You don't really need to crack that password. Instead, you may boot the laptop off a Windows password recovery CD or floppy such as this one: http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ and reset the password. Alternatively, if you insist on recovering the original password, you may refer to this tutorial (which I just found with Google): http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=security/localsamcrack2 http://www.irongeek.com/videos/Local-Password-Cracking.swf (it does not use John the Ripper optimally, but that's not the point). -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
