  • 1) not sure.

    2) probably because other people on the box are cancelling the resets. You can see this on the shoutbox:
    If you are talking about Open Admin, it is almost constantly being reset and people in the middle of an attack wont be too happy about this, so cancel the resets when they can.

    3) I dont think so.

    4) In VIP, you have one active machine at a time and it lasts (ISTR) 24 hours. If you transfer ownership, it doesn't shut down when the original owner shuts it down or the original time runs out.

    5) It used to be the oldest or second oldest was next to go. It doesn't seem that clear cut now but generally, the older the box, the more likely. A box over 120 - 140 days old isn't going to last long and its unusual to see a 30 day old box retire. Notification comes out on Wednesday I think.



    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.

    Currently have very limited HTB time but will try to respond as quickly as possible.

  • thanks for your efforts really apprecieted, now just still need to know something about vault :P
