You need to do two things: 1. Make sure you use the same all.chr file that you did before, -- perhaps one from a previous release of John. The order of candidate passwords tried will be less optimal than that possible with the current version of John, but you will be able to continue the old session. 2. Use JtR 18.104.22.168 or newer (currently, that would be 22.214.171.124), not the 1.7 release. There was a bug in 1.6.40 and the 1.7 release which could cause spurious "charset file changed" messages. If the FreeBSD port is still not updated to 126.96.36.199+, it's time to ask the port maintainer to do the update (feel free to do that). -- 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?
