Starting Point - Ports 445 and 1433 not open/connection issues

edited August 6 in Machines

I've just started at the "Starting Point" using HTB's Pwnbox.

At first, following along, (c+p the commands) the only open ports nmap finds are 80 and 22.

To try and fix this I had redownloaded the connection pack (from the tutorial page) to make sure that wasn't the issue, but now I can't even ping the host.

I am not sure if this is a common issue and I should just wait for the remote machine to be reset, or if I am doing something wrong.

Anyone else having the same issue or know a way to fix it?

Edit: Pwnbox doesn't need additional VPN connection to the HTB network.
