    i forgot to mention that i have real equip but no room. so i must go virtual. GNS3 was like packet tracer in its day. haha. it looks like you can run virtual box with it but not vmplayer. dang it.

  • Thanks for the info on the executive summery. My problem is i am a very detailed write so flashy is my type. Now to learn how not to be flashy in the right moments.


    That would be awesome. I have downloaded so many pdf’s on how to write a technical report, it aint funny. haha. It seems that apa style is the norm.

    If you’re new to this, you should expect to struggle for the first few attempts. As you progress you’ll start to learn what to look for and things will become a little easier. There will always be some degree of trial and error, especially when you get to more challenging machines, but there’s no substitute for experience and…

  • yeah i didnt think about that part. haha. yeah i have decideto use hose as my notes for research and then actually write a completly different report for the pen test. i figure in order for me to learn, i must document how the tools work for my sake and then perform te test and document the findings in a real report.


  • Awesome. that makes sense now. Ok so i was not just hearing things then. There is actually a 1.101 but it is only for student use. ok cool. So sine i do not have access to that, will 1.110 suffice for 1.101?

    I am trying to follow the dvd videos first then read the book. I plan on writing my technical report so i can turn it into my english…[Read more]

    yeah the videos might be sligthly newer than the book or vice versa.  The book goes along well with the labs and that’s how I’ve been using them.  I may fire that one up after I am done with my current read/lab combo. 

    so far i like it. I have found that i need to follow the videos first and the ISSAF before i read all of his bo…[Read more]

  • Yeha the ones that came with the book are 1.100 and 1.110 but in his videos he ays attack he 1.101 target as your individual pen test project. He has his back rack set to 1.10. Here are my open and closed ports. udp 53 is closed but book  gives hint that it is actually open. haha. but netcat dont wanna connect to it using nc -u 53.…[Read more]

    If memory serves, there was a 101.1, I have the labs at home and can take a peak later on.  There are some things that may no longer be valid since he has moved some of his material to HackingDojo. 

    awesome. yeah some things must have changed because in the video his nmap scan of 1.100 shows port 25 open. mine is closed. he c…[Read more]

  • PERFECT. ok thats what i was thinking. The above was originally going to be from my hands on exp portion as i follow along the movie for my actual pen test.

    But after reading my notes, i felt like it was a tutorial rather than an actual document.

    I have actually never written a technical report for anything haha so this will be new to…[Read more]

    last minute question. i notice in the dvd lectures thomas always says to practice against de-ice1.101. i do not and can not find de-ice 1.101. i can find 1.110 but not 1.101.

    Not sure about that… maybe he’s referring to an older release of 1.110, or just recorded it wrong.
