./john -w=/path/to/wordlist.txt hashes.txt
Where wordlist.txt is the file (all.lst for example) or dictionary
your using and hashes.txt is the file name containing your hashes.
./john -w=/home/nro/Desktop/all.lst sha1.txt
Your paths will vary, it's very easy to copy files into johns "run"
folder and jtr will look in the current dir (run) first. ./john
-w=all.lst sha1.txt
