John the Ripper settings

I've recently installed john the ripper and am trying to brute force a password file. I'm trying to set the password entry to be between 10 and 18 characters. I've edited ~/john.ini Incremental:All min to 10 and max to 18. When i run john -i:all pass.file it starts at 6 characters. Something else need to be edited?


# Incremental modes
File = ~/all.chr
MinLen = 10
MaxLen = 18
CharCount = 95

bash#: john -i:all pass.file ??

does something else need to be edited? Also i would like to set the username as Administrator.
bash#: john -users:Administrator -i:all file ??

any help would be appreciated.


btw, it's a converted win32 SAM file. Mine, no bad intentions.

maybe it`s case-sensitive... did you try -i:All?
