Ah, I see…
I hate when HTB does these kinds of stuff, not the first time. I understand that we need to learn but this is just stupid. I like the content but the tasks are horrible at best. Might need to rethink if i want to use this service anymore.
My question to HTB staff, how can I know this if I have never even encountered it before? How can I research into something that I did not know was possible?
Yes, i cant open the mounted NFS file, it is showing permission denied. Even though, i tried to create another user with the same userid and group id. i can’t still access it. I will appreciate a step by step guide. Thanks
For anyone struggling to connect to the machine via RDP, try using Remmina as some others have previously stated. It took me too much time to manage to log in via RDP with the correct credentials when using xfreerdp, which was returning an error STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE (which prompted me to think it was the invalid credentials). This is the experience from the Pwnbox, not sure if it’s the same via VM, but thought to give some help in case somebody gets stuck with this same problem.
