I'm running a VMware test network with 2 xp machines and backtrack 5. I'm going through the book : Metasploit: The Penetration Testers Guide
I'm able to open a reverse_tcp connection and drop the payload successfully only when windows(xp) firewall is turned off.
My question is this: How can I exploit the system when windows firewall is turned on?
Anyone know of a good tutorial or book dealing with getting around the firewall?
