For incremental mode and versions of JtR currently released, you can
only go up to length 9 without having to limit the character set.  For
length 10, you have to use a range of up to 84 ASCII codes.  For length
13, you can do 26 ASCII codes (such as either lowercase or uppercase

If you need to go beyond length 9 with incremental mode, you'll have to
use separate builds of JtR for this, with settings as shown in the
posting you referenced above.

BTW, your reference to LanMan doesn't make sense here, because this hash
type is limited to length 7 anyway (for the halves).

That's impossible without code changes.

This will be possible in future versions of JtR, and we've tried it out
in the contest, but you can't do it with the released code.
