I tried the following: *john -stdout -inc:ascii | findstr #* and the response was that john.rec was locked. If anyone has a quick fix for this, I'd love to try to get this to work. If not, I'll probably try to install a VirtualBox VM <https://builtin.com/data-science/linux-vm> with Ubuntu. P.S. - I'm on day 25. I'm getting 170p/s (and all the other metrics). I'm pretty sure I used a special character in the password. Is there a way for me to estimate how long it'll take for JTR to start trying special characters? Is there a way to force it to use them from the start?
