Jaguar posted a topic in Nubie HQHello there! Just registered an account in attempt the impossible: learning everything ever. Anyway I read somewhere about telnet being pretty neat, and I wanted to connect via telnet to my buddy's macbook pro while he's bumming around on the couch. But I ran into a problem in that I couldn't connect because port 23 was not open! So I spent about 4 hours searching the web for some information on how to open his port 23 but to no avail. Thusly I am here asking for help with my problem looking like the greenest 21 year old I could possibly be. If I can't figure out a way to do it remotely, I'll probably just do it manually on his system tomorrow. Hello and thanks!
Jaguar replied to Jaguar's topic in Nubie HQThanks a lot! Well I did some more research, found out and read about PuTTY and (eventually I'll get some sort of linux OS, but atm still using windows XP) downloaded it. I had to manually enable remote login to open port 22 on his machine, but now I can connect via ssh! The only problem now is he won't tell me his password. I'm aware that a bruteforce attack can run a wordlist and eventually find his password, but I'm not really sure how to do this. I'm gonna do some more research into this but any more advice would be greatly appreciated!
