Getting Started-Service Scanning

For some reason the terminal will not let me input Bob’s password for SMB question where I have to find the flag file and download it. I’ve restarted the instance, the lesson and my computer but still it won’t let me input anything into the password field, any suggestions on what I should do?

smbclient doesn’t echo characters (or even ****) as you type, so there would be no indicating you are actually inputting characters. Is it possible that’s what’s happening? What makes you think it’s not letting you input anything?

What happens when you just hit enter at the prompt? Do you get “session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE” If so, I think everything is working normally. You just have to type the password (given in the text of the section) and hit enter. You won’t see the password characters as you type them, but they are working.

I didn’t realize SMB wouldn’t show characters for the password, once I figured it out it was pretty easy after that. Much appreciated.
