What I do is a "pdsh -a pkill -15 john" and wait a little bit. jtr handles all the main signals, and upon getting a SIGTERM (-15) will actually shut down, but first after saving to the record files after finishing the current cracking loop. (from what I can tell) I strongly recommend you getting pdsh if you don't have it. -- Otheus otheus@...il.com +43.650.790.2571
