Rooting 1 2 and 3

Arrow Image I will explain how to do the first 3 rooting chals, in this articles i aim to, help people do the chals and help people knows going on.

In this article I will talk you though the first there rooting chalanages, for more experienced members this will seem a little slow, but it is aimed at the newbies on the site. :D

Lets get started then!

Rooting one!

We should start by seeing what commands are aloud. We can do this by using the "help" command. Lets start by Nmaping, Nmap is a command line port scanner. Witch lists ports that are open.

After we nmap using we see that he has 3 ports open, The port we are interested in is 21, Which is FTP, FTP stands for File transfer Protocol, File transfer protocol is used for putting/taking/editing files on remote server. Now we can try too log in to FTP and find look at the help CMD.

Some basic FTP commands(Linux)

Opens - connects too a FTP server
CD - Changes the folder you are viewing
cat - opens text files

This should be enough info for you too work this out, remember one step at a time

Rooting two

Ok, now were on too rooting too, start by using the help command, Now we're in the folder /sbin so CD too home so we can get started. Now find out what folders are in here (using a command ;)) then we can go to the next folder and so on. There are only 3 folders, in the home folder, and there are only 3 files that need to be deleted ;)

Not really much i can say about the challenge . :P Easy huh?

Rooting there

In this challenge we need too root Keven's computer, and open the windows password files using a program he made in c++(hinthint) Now, Keep in mind that he is running windows.

Lets get started, Login as admin/admin14. Use the help command, Now lets start by listing the files in C (remember he programs in c++). Oh dear, we cant open that folder, But we're looking for a program he's already made where could that be saved ;). After we find it we need to run the program (just type the name of the .exe). Now type the help command and you will see a new option, now just open the windows password file (hint; Its in the folder that would aloud you to CONFIGer your SYSTEM)

Thats all from me, If you need any help try to google for windows/linux commands. Please rate/comment :D Also keep in mind these challenges aren't like rooting what so ever, Just simulations to give you an idea, if you want too learn rooting learn about computer systems and networks.

Gay, i was doing a rooting 3 article but the submission thing was broke... Sad good job though

Pretty good article. I would've rated awesome, but the typos and spelling errors kinda lessened the value of it. Also, I feel that you might be giving a bit too much info to people in this article. Granted, the rooting challenges are not hard at all... in that respect, there is a lot of work that should be done by the person attempting it. Oh, and I'm not a fan of challenge articles, really... unless they are exceptionally written.

Indeed, less spelling errors is equal to a greater rating. Good job though.

Thanks, am dyslexic, so spelling is kinda hard for me Pfft but i ran it though the open office spell check also this article was aimed at less experienced members, so i explained everything and what everything dose

just little things like aloud/allowed and witch/which but it was pretty good. maybe link to a few pages on linux/unix commands. the rooting challenges do not go into enough depth to need much more of an article than this, so i guess you did your job. rated good. peace.

Good article but If you need this to complete the challenges I suggest you give up now, The challenges are way to easy and use simple commands.

Good article and one of the best rooting mission articles in my personal oppinion BUT . . . . there are loads of articles on rooting, I jus' wish there was not so much repetition of article's. This is why people complain alot about the articles needing tidying out. But this is a good article don't get me wrong.
Dr4g0nsh0ton November 15 2007 - 11:33:49
This is the only article that deals with rooting 3, The other rooting articles didnt realy expain alot of the terms to me when i was learning about them..

It got me through rooting, only a little struggle on 3 but just keep trying and you'll get it. Notice what is a directory and whatnot Wink
