Tired, and it is my own fault. last night I tried a very simple Metasploit exploit MS08_067_NETAPI on virtual windows XP machine , and it did not work , the error was “Exploit aborted due to no-target”. So after Googleing though it might have the version of windows XP , so install another SP3, set up again and went to bed at 1.15am . Tested this morning and the winxp machine was not showing on my Nmap port scans from Kail , which was taking to long , there it must be a network misconfiguration. When stuff like happens I can be a nightmare to around , and it nobody’s fault but own as I am so frustrated that I failed that I am actually angry at myself , and can take it out on others. It like it works for everyone else , why is not woking for me I followed instructions and should work, and then it all I think about all day trying to figure out what I did wrong .
I’m using Virtual box , Kail2 VM as the attacker and WinXP SP3 VM as the victim.Both virtual interfaces are set to bridged mode . When I perform Nmap scan on Kail it freezes? I did try an set up a static IP on WinXP , but realised I misconfigured it set to 192.168.10.xx when should be been 192.168.0.xx . I rebooted did another scan still freezing and unable to ping the WinXP machine , maybe I need to ipconfig /flushdns or ipconfig /release, but that have wait tonight . If I cannot get it working tonight I leave till the weekend when I have more time
