    Why on earth would you make a 160GB list?

    Its called rainbow tables.

    Split your list up into 1GB sections and run them one at a time. Assuming you can run through a 1GB list in 1 day a 160GB list is going to take you half a year to do. Thats also under the assumption that the AP will be on for that entire time. Rainbow tables are much faster anyways.

    You can use the split command to achieve this. The command can be used to split a wordlist either by number of lines or by specifying the desired size of the output files.

    Split the file wordlist.txt into files of 1 Gb size and with the name wordlist_part as prefix for the output files:
    Code:
    split --bytes=1024m wordlist.txt wordlist_part
    To split by the number of lines, say 100 000:
    Code:
    split -l 100000 wordlist.txt
    -Monkeys are like nature's humans.
