Starting Point Machine

Hi all!

New guy trying to startup in info sec.

Having some troubles just with the starting point tutorial :neutral:
I’ve followed everything up until I try to use mssqlclient.py where it says Login failed for user ‘ARCHETYPE\Guest’ even though I’m connecting as ARCHETYPE\sql_svc@10.10.10.27.
I have the password from the previous step, so that all should be right.

Any ideas?

you’d have to show us what commands you’re running otherwise pretty impossible for anyone to say what you’re doing wrong

try ARCHETYPE/Guest
in the password, do you have a !

i have the same problem

i have the password and it is telling me the password is wrong.

python3 mssqlclient.py ARCHETYPE\sql_svc@10.10.10.27 -windows -auth

with password M3g4c0rp123

get l;ogin failed for user ‘archetype\guest’

Sorry should’ve added that.
My command is exactly what usmarine2141 has

I will try peeks suggestion in an hour or so.

Thanks for the replies!

i tried guest, but not putting a ! at the end because the prod.dtsconfig file doesnt have a !

update: tried with appending a ! on the end and it does not work still.

Ha! Silly mistake!
Use forward slash not back slash for command.
so:
python3 mssqlclient.py ARCHETYPE/sql_svc@10.10.10.27 -windows-auth

yeah impacket loves their forward slashes even on windows where domain names and usernames are always normally separated by a backslash

When I run: mssqlclient.py ARCHETYPE/sql_svc@10.10.10.27 -windows-auth
I get:
Traceback (most recent call last):

anyone know what’s wrong?

Any help would be appreciated

@saj try downloading python 2.7.9, im pretty sure that command uses an older version. worked for me when i did it

@zillakami

python -V

Python 2.7.17

which python

/usr/bin/python

@Inigma THANK YOU THANK YOU! I didn’t even realize that it just had to due with the semantic issue around \ / 's …gawds…

@saj - I’m running Python 3.8.2

I had to download impacket-0.9.21 for my Kali-linux machine, otherwise myssqlclient.py will keep reporting “[-] Missing required parameter ‘digestmod’.”

v0.9.21 just came out in March, and it solves some issues related to SMB connections, but apparently not backslashes vs forward slashes! :grimace: :grimace: :grimace:

Hello everyone, I’m coming to you because I have a problem with impacket GitHub - SecureAuthCorp/impacket: Impacket is a collection of Python classes for working with netw

all the python library is installed but here is what I encounter as error:

./mssqlclient.py ARCHETYPE/sql_scv@10.10.27 -windows-auth

the VPN is connected, I uninstall and reinstall the python and impacket libraries and still nothing, always this error message, thanks in advance for your help.
