    Default john the ripper not seeing wordlist

    Trying john the ripper with the wordlist that comes with it:

    Code:
    root@bt:/pentest/passwords/john# ./john --wordlist:password.lst |aircrack-ng -b XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -w - /tmp/wpa*.cap
    but it doesn't seem to recognize the password file even though I checked it's there. The output is:

    Code:
    Password files required, but none specified
    Opening /tmp/wpa-01.cap
    Opening /tmp/wpa-02.cap
    Opening /tmp/wpa-03.cap
    Opening /tmp/wpa-04.cap
    Reading packets, please wait...
    
                                     Aircrack-ng 1.1 r2076
    Passphrase not in dictionary 
    
                                  0
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Quitting aircrack-ng...
    I tried various wordlists of different sizes, they all have that 0 except when I ran john without parameters (root@bt:/pentest/passwords/john# john |aircrack-ng -b, etc.) That time it said 46 instead of 0. However, the incremental attack works fine.

    I have version 1.7.9-jumbo-6 [linux-x86-sse2] and bt 3.2.6. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    This is from a slightly older version but I'm sure they haven't changed it

    Code:
    ./john
    John the Ripper password cracker, version 1.7.1
    Copyright (c) 1996-2006 by Solar Designer and others
    Homepage: http://www.openwall.com/john/
    
    Usage: john [OPTIONS] [PASSWORD-FILES]
    --single                   "single crack" mode
    --wordlist=FILE --stdin    wordlist mode, read words from FILE or stdin
    .....
    Looks like you want to use an equals sign not a colon.
    Code:
    root@bt:/pentest/passwords/john# ./john --wordlist=password.lst |aircrack-ng -b XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -w - /tmp/wpa*.cap
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    If thorin's suggestion doesn't work, try adding --stdout to your john invocation. Pretty sure it won't pipe to stdout without it.

    ternarybit ""solution"" worked!

    root@bt:/pentest/passwords/john# ./john --wordlist=password.lst --stdout | aircrack-ng -b 00:2x:xx:XX:XX:xx -w - /root/Desktop/me-01.cap
