I'm conducting some basic pen testing against a page protected with Basic Authentication. I've sucessfully tested with Medusa and Hydra but am struggling to get the syntax correct for ncrack.
The syntax I have been using usually gives the following error (which I am not entirely sure what it means)
Starting Ncrack 0.4ALPHA ( http://ncrack.org ) at 2014-05-10 13:37 EDT Failed to resolve given hostname/IP: . Note that you can't use '/mask' AND '1-4,7,100-' style IP ranges*
the web page is hosted on a local vm pointing to the webpage /~alice/secret/
ncrack -m http -U users -P adobe25 http://webserver_ip -path /~alice/secret/
Any help on explaining/fixing this syntax would be greatly appreciated.
