I am trying to run a ncrack command of the following format:

ncrack -P filePath1 filePath2 --user user1, user2, user3 ipAddress:port

and I get the following error;

enter image description here

Does anybody know why I'm getting this error and how to fix it?

The -P option doesn't take multiple arguments according to the man page, maybe concatenate the files at filePath1 and filePath2?

ncrack -P filePath1 --user user1,user2,user3 ipAddress:port

At least, that format just worked on my terminal.
