    Default Crunch Dictgen dont generate wordlist

    Hello,

    I try to generate a wordlist with Crunch Dictgen on a Backtrack 2 final live CD. With BT3 and BT1 its the same.
    Crunch generates passwords, but he didnt save it to a file.

    This is what im typing in the bash.

    /pentest/password/crunch 8 8 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ &> /mnt/hda2/wordlist

    I wonder that it dont generates errors, but theres nowhere the wordlist.

    So long, Thanks.

    You need to make sure hda2 is mounted and that you have write permissions to it.

    The write permissions are not the problem, Ive tried also /root/wordlist and other paths.

    and Crikey.. ! Good luck with the remaining (??!) space after that one.. I was looking into making a similar one, but it is just simply enormous..

    And of course, the drive is mounted. Has already anybody use this program ?

    I cant find a help file or manual to check the command. Also there isnt a command to write the wordlist to hdd.

    Thanks a lot for answers....

    Your command is correct. Ive used crunch quite a few times which is why I mentioned maybe something else was wrong. Have you tried to create the text file your self instead of relying on crunch to create it? Just a thought.

    /pentest/password/crunch 8 8 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ &> /mnt/hda2/wordlist
    Have you tried removing the & before the /mnt/hda2/wordlist?
    I just do /pentest/password/crunch 8 8 letters >/wordlist.txt
    I like the bleeding edge, but I don't like blood loss

    Thank you all for the fast answers.

    Ive tried it with /pentest/password/crunch 8 8 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ </wordlist.txt

    Then cames: directory not found, if I create a file wordlist.txt, it works without errors but there are no passwords in the textfile.

    The same with /pentest/password/crunch 8 8 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ /wordlist.txt oder /root/wordlist.txt.

    It works but no passwords.

    Strange, I just did a trial run using ;


    Code:
    /pentest/password/crunch 6 6 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ &> /mnt/hdd1/test.txt
    and it worked fine.

    How much free space you have on the drive ? Even if insufficient space (I also tested it on a portable USB drive),
    it should work until space is full and then stop crunchin (stop on HDD/USB activity) and require a Ctrl C to stop the process in console..

    I ddnt try with any more than 6 6 due to time / space constraints tho..

    I dont belive it, it works proper. The problem was the incorrect command line.

    It must be &> wordlist.txt

    Then the passwords go to the textfile, not to the bash.

    Anyone should write the correct command in the help file.

    Thanks for help, All the Best
