Yes. doc/MODES says, speaking of "incremental" mode: "... it is assumed that cracking with this mode will never terminate because of the number of combinations being too large ... and you'll have to interrupt it earlier ..." Please do read the documentation: http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/john/john/doc/ http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/john/john/doc/MODES?rev=HEAD;content-type=text%2Fplain Have you ran through some large wordlists, with word mangling rules enabled (the --rules option), prior to going with "incremental"? You can use, for example, this one: ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/wordlists/all.gz If you didn't run through a large wordlist, you can start a new session under a new name (use --session=NAME) such that you do not have to interrupt your "incremental" mode run or such that you can interrupt and continue it (--restore) after you're done with wordlists. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
