Subject: pwdump2 and JtR - problem with syntax in running JtR and displaying passwords

Hi,

I'm having problems using pwdump2 and JtR on an account with admin rights on a WinXP computer and would appreciate it if anyone could help.

I downloaded both programs and unzipped them to C, opened the command prompt then:

typed in "cd C:\pwdump2", hit return
typed in "pwdump2.exe", hit return

saw a list like -
Admin:500:aad3b435b...:12ed...:::
Account:1010:aad3b435...:d76...:::

at C:\pwdump2> I typed in "pwdump2 > passwords.txt"
copied that file from the pwdump2 folder to the folder C:\john1701\run

went back to the command prompt and typed in "cd C:\john1701\run"
at C:\john1701\run> typed in "john-386.exe passwords.txt"

saw a list like-
Loaded 8 password hashes with no different salts (NT LM DES [32/32 BS])
        <Admin>
        <Account>
guesses: 8  time: 0:00:00:00:00 100% (2) c/s 1127K trying 12345 - MUSTANG

Since this didn't display any passwords, I tried deleting
the files and starting over again, but after:

went back to the command prompt and typed in "cd C:\john1701\run"
at C:\john1701\run> typed in "john-386.exe -i:all passwords.txt"

and got-
Loaded 1 password hash (NT LM DES [32/32 BS])
Warning: MaxLen = 8 is too large for the current hash type, reduced to 7
Warning: mixed-case charset, but the current hash type is case-insensitive;
some candidate passwords may be unnecessarily tried more than once.
        <Admin>
guesses: 1  time: 0:00:00:00:00 c/s 3276 trying: 2100 - SPACY

I then tried repeating the process with:
"john-386.exe -i passwords.txt"

and got-
Loaded 1 passwords hash (NT LM DES [32/32 BS])
        <Admin>
guesses: 1  time: 0:00:00:00:00 c/s 7952 trying: SERO - SPARS

I've been fiddling around with it for a bit and tried reading the FAQ and some other stuff on the net and am still rather confused and would appreciate any clarafication possible.

Thanks for the time
