Error ? Skills Assigment - Pivoting, Tunneling, and Port Forwarding

Hello all,
stucked on login SSH after Q2.
the password in “for-admin-eyes-only” can’t never work.
Rebooted serveral time on server but in vein.
Plain Human not work! at all.
Weird, does anyone share the same situation?

This is because you have to “chmod 600 id_rsa” before trying to connect.

And you should ssh -D 9050 -i id_rsa webadmin@10.129.x.x.

The -D 9050 option in your SSH command creates a SOCKS proxy on localhost (your machine) at port 9050. You can route your RDP connection through this proxy.

Remember also to edit the configuration file of proxychains before connecting via SSH by using the following command:

sudo nano /etc/proxychains4.conf

Add the following row at the end of the config file: SOCKS5 9050 and comment the row that starts with “SOCKS4 …”.

I am writing this comment for whoever will need it in the future.

ALSO: use the pwnbox for this skills assessment, otherwise you will probably encounter errors, such as X.509 certificate errors when trying to do the RDP connection.
