It won't speed things up directly - in fact, it may cause JtR to spend more time in "single crack" mode. However, if more passwords do get cracked during "single crack", it may mean that there's less work to do for subsequent cracking modes, resulting in a slight speedup. > Im not able to use unshadow on the boxses You don't need to. Just copy the passwd and shadow files off those boxes, then run "unshadow" on whatever system you can run it on. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
