    Default JTR and aircrack-ng -w issue

    root@bt:~# /pentest/passwords/jtr/john --stdout --incremental:All | aircrack-ng -b 00:1E:2A:612:39 -w -/tmp/wpa2*.cap
    fopen(dictionary) failed: No such file or directory
    fopen(dictionary) failed: No such file or directory
    No file to crack specified.
    "aircrack-ng --help" for help.

    That pretty much sums up my problem i have been at this for hours searching forums and google with no success. Am i missing something? I have typed it in exactly as stated on forums :[

    I might be wrong here as I am not a developer but that is saying its looking for a file that isnt there or dont have access too???

    I could be wrong on this but I'm pretty sure the tmp folder gets cleared every time you reboot so that could be one reason why the file isn't there. another thing wrong with this is, -w option is to specify your wordlist not your .cap file. one other thing that could be giving you problems is you put a dash in front of your path "-/tmp/wpa2*.cap"
