I'm doing a pen-test on a Solaris/NT network and I found a Solaris server
with anonymous ftp on and with what appears to be the root directory of a
user on the system. Pardon my terminology as my experience lies mostly with
NT. Anyway, inside etc is passwd, which I suppose I need to get to wrap this
out, however everytime I try and retrieve it I get the error
ftp> get /etc/passwd
200 PORT command successful.
550 /etc/passwd is marked unretrievable
Another one of the folders reports access denied but this one definitely
Anybody have an idea on what I am doing wrong or how to get access to it.
