The real key to passwd crackers is the dictionaries they use for the
bruting. then better, bigger, more inclusive the dict, the more likely you
are to get results.

Hi all

I am tryning to crack cisco md5 password.
Currently I am using a Athlon XP2500barton at 2300mhz, after 17days john 
continue to crack at 3800c/s (it started at 4500c/s).
I am asking myself and all of you what is the best system (hardware) to 
crack md5 password.
I am thinking that the best way Is the powerfull (mhz) i386 in commerce.
I've tried OpenMosix with 4 p500 nodes with john and cisilia, but 
without lucky results.
The sun 280 (dual 64bits cpu at 900mhz) go to a poor 900c/s

which is you reference system to use john on md5 password ?

Giacomo
