    Its probably something easy, but I cannot figure this out. I cannot get john the ripper to work properly with BT4 prefinal. Ive tried numerous things from cracking a password, --show, --test, etc. No matter what i type in It just shows the "john --help screen" with all the different options.

    Also if i boot to BT3, john works fine, but i would like it to work in bt4...

    Here is what i type in: (all i get is the page with options)
    john file.txt
    john --show file.txt
    john --test

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    There certainly is no need for that on the same day within hours of one another. Re-read the rules you agreed to.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Heres what john does on my install of BT4 Prefinal when I run it.

    Code:
    root@bt4pf:~# john[*] This script will take you to /pentest/passwords/jtr/[*] From there, run ./john <parameters>
    root@bt4pf:/pentest/passwords/jtr#
    So basically you need to be in the /pentest/passwords/jtr directory and run john using "./john" or you need to run john using the full path of "/pentest/passwords/jtr/john".
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.
