Does it understand NT-hashes ? I installed it, but it seems to only
support LANMAN hashes...

Also, I'm finally lost in its multiple options.
I'm not going to do anything but brute force attack on NT hashes.

What are the options you used and what is john.ini (if any ??).

Also, what is maximum length of password hashed by NT hash ?
