Subject: Re: Display Cracked Hashes for a Specific Session

From: "firstname lastname" <>

>I have a question regarding how to display cracked hashes for a specific 
> Let's say, I am cracking a hash file called hashes.txt.
> I run 3 sessions against it with 3 different rules as follows:

> ./john -w:wordlist.txt --rules=rule2 --session=cracking2 hashes.txt
> ./john -w:wordlist.txt --rules=rule3 --session=cracking3 hashes.txt

Change the above to this:

./john -w:wordlist.txt --rules=rule1 --session=cracking1 -pot=sess1.pot 
./john -w:wordlist.txt --rules=rule2 --session=cracking2 -pot=sess1.pot 
./john -w:wordlist.txt --rules=rule3 --session=cracking3 -pot=sess1.pot 

When done, do    cat sess1.pot >> john.pot & cat sess2.pot >> john.pot & cat 
sess3.pot >> john.pot.


./john -show -pot=sess1.pot hashes.txt
./john -show -pot=sess2.pot hashes.txt
./john -show -pot=sess3.pot hashes.txt

Within the .pot file, there is no information about session number. 
However, if you specify the pot file to write to, and it is different than 
john.pot, then you are providing the grouping information needed.
