Ok, I used the cygwin version of the Markov filter - works flawless so far. 2. I'm using it on a DES passwd file I have, consisting of 557 passes (467 salts). 3. I first tried level=100:0:0:8 to see if it's working, got nothing cracked. 4. Next, I tried level=150:0:0:8 and got 5 cracked. 5. Currently, I am running level=216 for the last 33 hours. I split the work using the index parameter (and the knowledge of how many combinations there is, from the stats operation) to two parts , for my two cores (AMD X2). So far, 43 more passes cracked. 6. I estimate the process to end within 40 hours, then I'll have more results to post. Now, questions: 1. Is there a recovery file of some kind ? I couldn't find any.... 2. Is the filter generating combinations with CAP letters ? 3. I would surely appreciate somekind of progress indication , since it is a finite process - like the percentage shown in wordlist mode. 4. When I finish running my current process of level=216 - I would certainly want to try higher levels to get more passes cracked , Is there a way to run higher levels without repeating previous checked combinations (in lower levels) ? 5. Could you explain mkvcalcproba.exe , usage, purpose & output ? 6. Thinking about it, a FAQ would have solved my n00b question :) Thanks for your patience!
