Hi Alexander, I will try PRINCE mode as suggested on another machine that I recently built with better GUPs. As I am not familiar with this mode. Is there more documentation that would better explain this mode. Also, in the past I have always used the increment mode and I have a machine that ran for 8 months and it still has not found the password that I am hoping to find. I did find the other known test passwords that I set in place to see if the JOHN was working throughout the process. Maybe simply my temporary password that I used was simply too long, like 15-18 chars. Now I am thinking about there has to be a better way to do this than trying to brute force a long password. I do remember some bits of the password but I want to see if I can use increment mode or some other mode and combine wordlist and know chars to improve the search. I am also using -form=tezos-opencl Regards, Powen On Sun, Jun 14, 2020 at 10:35 AM Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> wrote: > On Sun, Jun 14, 2020 at 09:57:46AM -0400, Powen Cheng wrote: > > What is the best cracking method to use to maximum the search using > (known > > bits) of a password? > > There isn't a universal best choice, but: > > > I do know some parts of the password but in what order or combination > which > > is the unknown. > > > > example of list known bits. > > > > A > > B > > C > > # > > @ > > 3 > > wordone > > wordtwo > > wordthree > > wordfour > > wordfive > > The easiest way to have these searched reasonably well is to put them > into a wordlist file and use the PRINCE mode.
