Running Cygwin on Windows 7 trying to compile and run THC Hydra


So this is where it sits.

I have a network security class, and I need to have this figured out by this time next week. I have no unix experience and was just kind of thrown into this.

I have the latest edition of Cygwin and the THC Hydra. I have Cygwin installed The Hydra is unzipped to my desktop.

I've been working with a friend over the internet and have figured out a couple different things. I think it is ls and then cd / that will take me to the root directory.

From there I have typed variations of cd "cygwin/c/documents and settings/arrizx/desktop/" trying to get to my desktop directories with no luck.

Can someone help me? :\

That worked!! Thanks man.

Although remember my lack of unix experiencec.

Now what do I type to make something happen.

Now that I am "at" the desktop (right?) the folder I need to access is "hydra-5.4-win" which contains three .dll files, and two .exe applications and the readme file.

So that would be cd "/cygdrive/c/documents and settings/arrizx/desktop/hydra-5.4-win" right?

Once I get there, I type the "./configure" "make" "make install" and nothing happens.

I don't know where to keep going from here.........


Quote:


HOW TO USE
----------
Type "./configure", followed by "make" to compile hydra and then
"./hydra -h" to see the command line options.
You make also type "make install" to install hydra to /usr/local/bin.
Note that NO login/password file is included. Generate them yourself.
For Linux users, a GTK gui is available, try "./xhydra"


HOW TO COMPILE
--------------
Type "./configure" and then "make" and "make install".
If you have CYGWIN, you have to follow the instructions "./configure" prints
after running.
For PalmPilot, run "./configure-palm".
For ARM processor mobiles, run "./configure-arm".

It sounds like you've downloaded the windows version... you don't need to be in a cygwin shell at all, just run the appropriate exe

I try. But when you click on it, a command prompt flashes up and disappears. Nothing.

Then run it from inside a command prompt

Code:
Start >> Run >> cmd
cd "c:\documents and settings\arrizx\desktop\hydra-5.4-win"
hydra.exe
The windows version is already compiled

type 'hydra -h' for usage info

cheers
