    Default [BT4] HydraGTK Problem

    I seem to be having a problem when the program is trying to find the password list file. The problem seems to be when the password list is a very large file? What is the cut off size so hydra can recognize the file?

    Thank You

    Im guessing it depends on how much memory you have, i also wouldn't use anything larger than half a gig.

    Thats just an educated guess tho so dont quote me on it
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    Yea the cut off for me is around 800mb for HydraGTK, on the other hand aircrack can bruteforce WPA with a large txt file.

    Thats because aircrack uses sql, it makes it a little slower but for files over 2 gigs its needed. Anything under 2 gigs use cowpatty ... its faster.

    Cowpatty on a 64 bit machine can use over 2 gig files just fine. I know Backtrack is not 64 but just FYI.
