Re: Metasploit Bind_shell

I will assume from your last sentence that we are speaking about two different machines (i.e., the MS-SQL is not running on the same box as Metasploit).

You probably noticed a delay between the second and third steps.
You probably also spotted both ends of the "connection" are, that's your local machine (the one you're running Metasploit).

Other than suggesting that you to "Read The Fine Manual" (RTFM) available, that situation happens because you can't connect to the bind shell (either due to the firewall or because of the machine not being vulnerable). When that happens Metasploit helps the waiting connection to finish by doing a dummy connection from localhost after a certain delay.

Does this module have a "check" functionality? Does it tell you the machine is vulnerable?

Try other ports (in the high range), or try a reverse shell to either port 80 or a high port on your end.

both machines are behind a fiewall.. does this mean I got a shell on that connects to the remote box?
