    Default _two laptops in distributed system

    ...useing your laptop to brute force some password (wep...) will take time
    ...but if u got two of them both on bt3
    i can make some kind of 'small' distributed system ...i guess
    ...is there a way to do it in 'easy' steps with bt3 ...what tools,
    that will do just for this kind of goal ??
    ...thx

    Bruteforcing is not, or at least should not, be used for cracking WEP keys, so there is hardly any need for a cluster of several computers to crack one key.

    I don't know about the validity or necessity of using it to crack a WEP key () but BT supports JtR network cluster booting.............

    I had thought to use a small cluster to break WPA encryption. I didnt know there was functionality built into backtrack for distributed computing o.0 Ill have to look around a little. I currently have a small cluster (hadoop) but really have no idea how to go about applying it toward anything but basic grep functions :S Anyone have any experience with distributed computing, cuz im really at a brick wall here. Id love any input anyone might have.
