    Default Can't copy file from BT on vmware "You need permission to perform this action"

    Hey guys,

    I am trying to figure out what may cause this problem, I can't copy an exe file i had created on metasploit. The file is on the backtrack 5 vmware and i am trying to copy it to my windows 7 professional SP1

    I have Google'd a bit and tried the following:

    1. disabling UAC (was already disable but i check it anyways)
    2. trying to copy it to a shared folder. (didn't work as well)
    3. Changing the name of file
    4. Allowing remote desktop connection

    I really hope someone here can help me out with it, this is really frustrating


    Thanks guys

    Two solutions. One: install vmware tools, then just drag and drop. Two: if you dont want to do that then create an ftp serve like this.
    type "apt-get install proftpd"
    run it as standalone
    find out backtrack ip address ("ifconfig")
    add a user: "adduser [name]" ftp wont allow root access.

    disable firewall in windows through the registry or set the global firewall to be disabled
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\servic es\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\PublicPr ofile
    enablefirewall set to 0

    run cmd from windows
    type in "ftp (ip address)"
    log in as the user you created
    type in "bin" (for all non-ascii files like large word lists that are rar-ed or exe's)
    type "put/get {filename}" itll be in the root directory of the user you ceated, to find out where to cp it type in "cd" in the windows cmd ftp server, then just copy it there.

    if these instructions are confusing then let me know and ill post screenshots of each step.
    World Domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer the term World Optimization.

    Hi ShadowMaster,

    First, Thanks for the full advice!

    1. I have vmware tools for linux but it done nothing.
    2. I did the bypass in a different way, through Gmail account. (But i did install filezilla anyways)

    Thanks again
