Academy: Attacking Common Services | Attacking FTP

Did anybody manage to crack the FTP credentials?

The exercise says: “Use the discovered username with its password to login via SSH and obtain the flag.txt file. Submit the contents as your answer.”

I have found the user (r…), and I tried to crack the FTP credentials using several wordlists, with no success. I even tried to crack SSH and SMB, no success.

Can somebody give me a nudge?

Why would you even need the credentials?

@kruemel You don’t have to crack the credentials. You can connect to the server anonymously.

I guess we’re talking about different servers. I am in the section “Attacking FTP”. The FTP port is 2…/tcp, and the FTP user is “r…”. The exercise question is “Use the discovered username with its password to login via SSH and obtain the flag.txt file. Submit the contents as your answer.”. And I cannot FTP into the machine as “anonymous”. Any idea?
