This mailing list exists primarily for sharing experience with using
John the Ripper, and for asking and answering reasonable (preferably
advanced) questions.  Unfortunately, your question, as formulated above,
cannot be answered without further clarifications (what hash type?)

The generic answer, though, is that John the Ripper with no unofficial
patches does not support any on-the-wire-only hash types (e.g., those
used in various challenge-response protocols).  If you happen to capture
"regular" password hashes, such as those normally stored on a server,
those might be supported.  Otherwise, you need patches, which might not
be readily available for a particular hash type.
