However, When I press the space bar on the terminal window it does give me the current PW it's tryng. If I cat the john.pot file it shows me some passwords. However when I type the following I get the following, john --show john 4 password hashes cracked, 0 left The john program continues to work, as I mentioned when I press the space bar it shows me the current try. I also know that that the shadow file has more passwords. I can see names in the list with encrypted pw's in it. I have been running this for about 2 months. Can anyone help me to understand the results of my various commands. Should I leave it running ? And allow it to keep trying the rest of the passwords. Thanks.
