[Academy] Stack-Based Buffer Overflows on Windows x86 Remote Fuzzing

Hello All,

I’m not sure what I am doing wrong here but this is my current issue for a few days now:

For the Remote Fuzzing part, the python script keeps saying that it cannot connect.

I openvpn into the htb academy, I rdp into the target box (after launching).

I run the CloudMe and xdb (with no breakpoints),
cmd $netstat -a and see that the port 8888 is listening.
I then run the script $python3 win3buffer.py on my machine
and get the Could not establish a connection

I tried running the instance on the site, no luck.
I believe I follow the steps exactly on the remote fuzzing part of the tutorial but to no luck.

Any suggestions?
