Subject: Help with password length >8 character

Hello everybody,

I'd appreciate your help with the problem I have. I've just installed
john on my old 1U PIII box. I'm going to use John with conjunction of
SIPcrack tool:

Quote from SIPcracks' doc:

Using SIPcrack in combination with John the ripper

Make a fifo file pipe:

$ mkfifo myfifofile

Start john using the desired settings. Below is an example which
generates passwords with max 8 letter length and only contains
alpha characters.
Using > redirect johns output into the fifo file you just created:

$ john --incremental=alpha --stdout=8 > myfifofile

Start sipcrack and use the fifo file pipe as the wordlist source:

$ sipcrack -w myfifofile logins.dump


John and SIPcrack work fine and it is great. The problem starts if
password length is greater then 8 chars. For example, I have the
following password ZxTh195*s#dq and John in default install wont's
support such a password.

I'd like to hear your opinions what can be done in my case. The only
requirement I have is that it _must_ user all.char charset.

I won't mind to have 10 different installs of john - one for passwords
0-8 char length, second only for 9 char length, third - only for 10
and so on but again, they whole ASCII code table in password
generation is requirement.

If there is a solution, please guide me what I need to modify in the
source code and where.
Thanks in advance.
