Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running this because my password contains upper case and lower case characters, it is 11 characters long so I am using between 8 and 12 for testing purposes. It is also commonly what most people would use as far as length.
For starters when I do this it says it is creating a MASIVE file, somewhere around 192 PetaBytes or some other ridicilous figure, may not be as high as I said ...
The other problem I am encountering is it says the MAC ADDRESS is invalid. How is this possible ? This is my biggest question.
My other question is, I know for a FACT my own password does not contain anything like dictionary words and is very complex. I realize it will take pry a couple weeks to crack. That's OK. This is a separate laptop, so I can leave it running off to the side.
So once it recognizes the MAC ADDRESS (I'm hoping someone here can address that) how do I get it to scan all available characters without generating such a massiive password list that will more than take up the 50 gigs I have for this virtual drive. Even if I assigned all 500 GB this file wouldn't fit. Ideas ?
P.S. I tried multiple dictionary files, of course none of them worked because as I stated my password is complex.
root@kali:~/hs# crunch 11 11 0123456789 | aircrack-ng -bssid 11-11-11-11-11-11 -w- ATT_11-11-11-11-11-11.cap
Crunch will now generate the following amount of data: 1200000000000 bytes
Crunch will now generate the following number of lines: 100000000000
Invalid BSSID (not a MAC).
"aircrack-ng --help" for help.
I am trying to do this on a 50 GB Virtual Machine although I could expand to 300 GB - which still seems wouldn't cover it
