Access machine: problems with downloading from attacker machine


I was wondering if anyone experienced problems downloading files to the HTB Access box from their attacker machine? I got the user flag but while on a low priv shell I had a lot of trouble trying to download a payload to that machine. I tried several avenues all which timed out

  • certutil
  • powershell iex download
  • hosting an FTP server
  • Impacket SMB server

All but the most simple of text files would not DL, so I was convinced it was running AV or firewall. Ended up checking a writeup to see that it wasn’t and should be fine to DL from the attacker machine. Am running the normal python SimpleHTTPServer. Tried reverting and other testing. Just wondering if anyone has seen that before?
