Subject: Re: Current rar crack progress - exportable to another machine?

perhaps I can help out here, considering that other programs have similar questions asked about this.

well, if you move the pot files (and in fact, the entire .john directory), you should maintain current work progress as well as settings. just remember to use the exact same command as on the previous machine (such as john mypasswd) or you can use the restore option.

I hope I got this right.
