That means john is already running, assumably your cracking session. I believe it's in the FAQ. Add a --session option with a unique name (eg. "--session=foobar") to your command above. > 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.

It will do so early (candidate number 37,706 contains a "!"), but your password might take millions of years to crack anyway: For example, a random password of lemgth 8 has a keyspace of 95^8, or 6,634,204,312,890,625. Given a speed of 170p/s and average luck, you'll crack it in 618,733 years. If your password is not random, it might crack sooner. magnum
