hi guys I’m a beginner can you guys give me tips & tricks for the machines? Can I save my machines too? Please and thank you

I am also in the beginning stages, I’ve always wondered about how we could come as a community and chat. I always was curious in regards to a # of avenues that a student could navigate through. I have a couple theories, 1st going through Starting point is quite a bit of work, 2nd the Machines have a vast amount of online Vids, Medium walk-throughs, and plenty of others offering their input.
Academy is a solid way to learn what are the basics as well as Nmap, BurpSuite, and other GR8 stuff. I see this portion of HTB as a good starter and mix in what you can handle and make it work for UT style.
