Hi All,

I decided to test Metasploit against an open VNC
server, following the following directions:

https://www.rapid7.com/db/modules/auxiliary/scanner/vnc/vnc_login

After entering at the msf prompt:
    use auxiliary/scanner/vnc/vnc_login

I never get my prompt back.

According to the directions, I should
be able to enter:
      msf auxiliary(vnc_login) > show actions

What am I missing?

Many thanks,

You know, the little buzzard is working over in my VM of
Kali-linux.

No msf command will work on the host machine.



Hi All,

I figured it out.  While looking up iformation requested by
the Metasploit form, on a lark, I opened an xterm and elevated
to root. Then I cd'ed into /usr/local/bin.  And I ran msfconsole
directly.  Guess who started working!

I had been rinning:
   /usr/bin/gksu -u root  "/usr/local/bin/msfconsole"
from my Xfce Pane2lanucher.  So, I tried
  /usr/bin/gksu -u root  "cd /usr/local/bin; /usr/local/bin/msfconsole"
No joy.  So it is the gksu command that is at fault.

So, I switched my Xfce Panel 2 launcher to:
  su root -c  "cd /usr/local/bin; /usr/local/bin/msfconsole"
With run in terminal checked on, and JOY!

Thank you so much for all the help and moral support.

-T
