Hi there,

I know some systems wait for YOU to select a service BEFORE prompting
you with username etc to login..   (FYI: Older IBM systems (and/or AT&T)
expected characters like 'a', '.' or '$' for them to start the services
connected to older mainframe appplications; even for Notes they had a
TSO application, just type in a ':' and you can download your .nsf file
updates! :-) Woooot..)

At what speed (and modem protocol) are you connecting? This 'COULD' help
you identify which service it is...

Also, you need to dial DIRECTLY from the modem instead of using programs
like CC and/or PcAnywhere.. They in fact to exactly what I stated above
(identify with a string to select a service) but now you are limited to
PcAnywhere and CC strings, if you dial DIRECTLY from the modem, you can
send you own string types. - Start Hyperterminal and go to COMx.. Then,
type use AT commands to fire up that connection! ATDTxxxxxxxxx

Good luck! ;-)

Have you tried connecting to it with a simple terminal program to see if
it responds with anything that might give a clue.  Try sending a couple
return or control codes each time you connect.  Honestly, if THC doesn't
guess what it is, it might be tough to figure out.  Try connecting at
different speeds too...maybe it's not autosensing.

Good day everyone,

Been war dialing a number and every time I connect it doesn't send me a
prompt to try to log onto the system.  I couldn't identify the system
responding.

THC scan simply reported that it detected a carrier... Not that useful
in my
case. I need to identify the system and try to connect with the
respective
client. And possibly bruteforce the device once the login screen shows.

 

Tried pcanywhere and carbon copy as clients and still no information was
disclosed.

 

Any ideas gurus out there??

 

Thanks...

MAK
