    Although written for BT2, the same applies for BT3 apart from the MD5, which for BT3b is

    and

    Hi Balding

    Is there an actual problem here which hasn't been addressed? I am a newbie who does search.

    I was malingering on this forum waiting for someone to answer a problem about a utility no one seems to know about called SIPCRACK (I have received one DUH answer from a Senior Member who suggested he knew how SIPCRACK worked; telling me to do something I had said I had already done. Followed by a distinct shattering silence, - apparently on everyone's part) and saw this thread.

    I successfully burned the CD and have used it on numerous computers to try to use this SIPCRACK program. However on one computer, I booted it about five times and the CD THEN started giving me this linux 3.36 2007-02-10 copyright h peter anvin message instead of a boot. Checked the disc, no scratches. Checked the BIOS, no problems. Continuous error message preventing the CD starting. Put CD into another computer and it works perfectly (perfectly except of course that I cant get any app to identify my SIP to feed a billion passwords into it!!)

    The only other thing I can think of is some jumpering problem with an existing drive preventing something from booting but there have been no jumpering problems: I suppose there is JUST some tiny chance that a drive has died on me and is shorting but that shouldnt prevent a computer from booting from a CD?

    Put the CD back into 'malfunctioning' computer after checking it on the other computer and it still wont boot: Same black screen with the same Linux line in top left corner. Took CD out and it boots properly from its hard drive.

    BTW on another point, does anyone know if the sipcrack program is any more intuitive on the beta version please?

    I seen your post and no one answered so I answered and gave you some information based on what I could read. I apologize for the fact that I could not read your entire post due to the font.
    As for suggesting " he knew how SIPCRACK worked"
    I never stated I knew how the program worked in this thread or your other one. I post you a link to the page that would be the "official" host of the program and it's associated documentation. Whether I know how to use the program and I stated that I did has nothing to do with what I could understand in your first original post on the matter. BTW I do know how to use the program. I will also tell you that the program is a bit old and I do not think that MaJoMu does a whole lot of support for it, especially with people he does not know.

    As for the other question's in your above post about your cd working correctly or whatever this is for someone else at another time.

    Back to your problems' with SIPCRACK I will now lead you to your other post.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Back to your problems' with SIPCRACK

    Sorry for my implications which were unintended: All I was looking for was someone who knew how to use the program who could tell me what I was doing wrong. I pretty much know that the computer isnt seeing the device I am trying to crack at eth0. I really need to figure out what is IS seeing the device which I call a SIP as. (I know that SIP is a protocol. Sorry for referring to it as an electronic box which uses the protocol to change the Ethernet signal into a telephone signal. You are absolutely right)

    Many thanks for your response on the other thread which I am trying to interpret in the light of my own limited knowledge: I see the problem is that the writer of SIPCRACK doesnt like supporting his software with newbies like me. I can well understand that. Maybe I should try the other software which you mention to crack the password of this Cisco box, I wonder if it will work under Windows. I really am not good at importing external programs into Linux which arent written to the CD!

    Did my mention of cds not booting assist anyone, - which was the intention?
