    Default Hydra will keeps timeing out when trying password

    Hi,
    I have been practising my router hacking with medusa and hydra. To start i just wanted to check both tools worked so i tried with medusa with the following command.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# medusa -h 192.168.0.1 -u admin -p tomtom -M http
    Medusa v2.1 [http://www.foofus.net] (C) JoMo-Kun / Foofus Networks <jmk@foofus.net>
    
    ACCOUNT CHECK: [http] Host: 192.168.0.1 (1 of 1, 0 complete) User: admin (1 of 1, 0 complete) Password: password123(1 of 1 complete)
    ACCOUNT FOUND: [http] Host: 192.168.0.1 User: admin Password: password123[SUCCESS]
    As you can see no problems there...

    So i moved onto hydra next, but hydra was not as simple as just putting HTTP in the command there was a list of diffrent types of http and i was not sure which one to use so i just tried them all because i was sure one had to work but no.
    I was also sometimes asked for the webpage login address but my router does not have one of these. With my router you enter in the IP of the router into a browser and a windows box pops up asking of username and password. I am not sure which one is my problem.

    Please look at my code below and tell me were i am going wrong? iv tried googling it for abar 2 hours now with no luck

    Code:
    root@bt:~# hydra -l admin -p password123 -t 1 -w 5 192.168.0.1 http-get http://192.0168.0.1

    Solved! after many hours of searching i realised it was the webpage that was causing the problem. I would have never of known you can put a simple "/" in the place of the webpage. Have to give the credit to the following youtube video:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Em3u17ME4oU (wish it would have shown its face when i first tried )

    Correct code is below

    Code:
    root@bt:~# hydra -l admin -p password123 -t 1 -w 5 -V 192.168.0.1 http-get /
