TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

Hello,

I've recently download TSGrinder and I've been having issues running the application. When I run the application from the command prompt I get the following error:

tsgrinder timed_Event_send_recv: Wait failed: TIMEOUT

I've googled this error and it says to download and run the application from ROBOCLIENT. I downloaded this client but nothing is happening? What are the next steps to using roboclient and tsgrinder together?

BTW - I'm running XP SP3.

Re: TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

There was an update to mstsc mid-last year that broke the call backs.  I've been trying to send this to pen-test, but it hasn't been posted yet.  I did send it to Thor, and he said he was going to take a look at it.  I will post in a sec...

Re: TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

Maybe soon this will finally show up on pen-test... :-)

A while back I encountered an issue when using TSGrinder:

C:\usr\sbin\tsgrinder
>tsgrinder -u administrator -b -n 2 192.168.1.5
timed_Event_send_recv: Wait failed: TIMEOUT
Couldn't get handle to client window

I was busy and didn't have time to mess with it and it still worked on
one of my other computers.

Over the holidays things were slow, so I decided it was time to look
into why I got the error.  Turns out my first machine was fully patched
and the older moth-balled box wasn't.  The problem is due to the upgrade
of mstsc during a windows update.

The workaround in a nutshell:

Download & Unzip TSGrinder
Obtain and place a copy of mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll version
5.1.2600.2800 (you may be able to find it in an $NTUninstall under
%windir%) in the same directory as TSGrinder.

Place the following text in a new file called tsgrinder.exe.manifest

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<assemblyIdentity
version="6.0.0.0"
processorArchitecture="x86"
name="redirector"
type="win32"
/>
<description>DLL Redirection</description>
<dependency>
<dependentAssembly>
  <assemblyIdentity
    type="win32"
    name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"
    version="6.0.0.0"
    processorArchitecture="X86"
    publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df"
    language="*"
  />
</dependentAssembly>
</dependency>
<file
    name="mstscax.dll"
/>
</assembly>

And place it in the same directory.

This worked for me - anyone else?

Re: TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

thanks for the post, somewhere i posted that i was just using an older version of the remote desktop software, or maybe it was the "new" version at the time, tsgrinder is a pretty old tool.

Re: TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

Does anyone know where to download a copy of these 2 files?  I also had RDesktop begin to fail with a cannot get handle on window error. Has anyone seen a fix for it?

Re: TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

Got it working.  Stuffed a working copy for everyone here:
http://conservativebooktalk.com/files/tsgrinder.zip

works on XP sp3; if its a single logon box and someone is logged in, it won't work.  also, seems to fail after the first five password attempts when running from Win 7.

Enjoy.

Re: TSGrinder Problems *HELP*

I didn't have much luck with tsgrinder either.

I use a patched version of rdesktop I have on my backtrack vm.
Its not the fixing that's the hard part, its knowing what needs fixing.
