Do you handle --config=other.conf? If there are multiple --config= (or -conf: ---) options on the command line, john will use the last one. But we could also treat this as a bug in john, and write a patch so that specifying multiple --config options on the command line results in an error. We probably need to handle includes in some way. Another approach would be to add some functionality into john which resolves the contents of the section(s) needed for a certain attack so that it can be used by a script. Something like ./john (parameters and options that specify an attack) --generate-config which would write a minimum config file to stdout, including all the sections (and either resolving or including sub-sections) needed for the attack. I am not sure how hard to implement this would be, but I assume it shouldn't be too hard. If such a functionality exists, You could upload an attack-specific config file instead. To further enhance this idea, --generate-config could also add information about which files (not counting the password hash files) will be needed for the attack into comments at the begin of the config file. (If --generate-config doesn't resolve include files, all the required includes need to be listed as files required for the attack in the comments at the begin of the generated config file.) But all this is certainly stuff to be considered after the contest. > Frank, please, look onto the script. Will do, but this will take some more time. Frank
