For practical reasons, I cannot reboot the system in single user mode and change the password. I have done this times past for other servers. It just so happens that I used the same password on another server, and created a passwd file with the one entry. I am running the John that comes with Fedora 22, the docs cay it is 1.10 2013/05/29. John has been crunching away for 20 days on a Lenovo x120e notebook without finding the password. Well I know a few things about this password and I would like to instruct John o be selective on what it tries. But I am a bit of a hack and need so hand-holding on how to alter /etc/john.conf (or make another) that will target the password. I know the password is 10 characters long. I know that the first position is either 'x' or 'X'. The second is a digit, as is the third. The forth is alpha, and I don't know the case. The fifth is either 'q' or 'Q' and soforth (either digit, some alpha, or a specific alpha of either case) How do I set up what amounts to a mask on possible passwords to try? thank you for your assistance.
