"Starting Point" - Enumeration Issue

So I've just created an account. And looking to get started in learning how to get hacking! Although I'm having some issues.

I have openvpn and downloaded the connection pack for the starting point machine. But when running it in shell. It errors with the following:

Wed Jul 15 06:56:12 2020 /sbin/ip -6 addr add dead:beef:2::103e/64 dev tun3
Wed Jul 15 06:56:12 2020 /sbin/ip route add 10.10.10.0/24 via 10.10.14.1

Wed Jul 15 06:56:12 2020 WARNING: this configuration may cache passwords in memory -- use the auth-nocache option to prevent this
Wed Jul 15 06:56:12 2020 Initialization Sequence Completed

At first I thought this was normal, so carried on. And when using nmap to scan the ports on 10.10.10.27 it's saying that the "Host may be down"

Is my VPN failing to connect? Is so why? I'm doing everything the Tutorial is telling me, I've tried googling the error and it's been suggested to remove certain point from the config file. Although I don't think I need to touch that right?

Any help is greatly appreciated :smile:

  • Hi,

    Could you please verify the server for the Starting-point labs. Also, note that you have more than one tun interfaces. Try killing the openvpn process or try to restart your virtual machine.

    Thanks, turns out after a restarting my VM it's now working. Appreciate it!

  • I also tried:
    re-generate connection pack
    re-connecting
    re-starting
    but ping works for 10.10.15.2 and for 10.10.14.31 but doesn't reached machines and nmap with -Np also gives that all ports are filtered.
