TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Unable to use Metasploitable

Unable To login into the metasploitable OS. I've tried searching the entire web for the commands that allow me access inside but i cant find any. First is this: Metasploitable Login: I use 'msfadmin' as username and password here to get the next line: msfadmin@metasploitable:~$ What next now... This seems like a noob question, but i just cant get any proper answer to this anywhere.. Could someone please give me a complete tutorial on how to use metasploitable. I have the metasploitable on one VMware workstation and backtrack5 on another VMware workstation. How do i configure metasploitable... I posted this question on another forum but got very little detail on how to use metasploitable. Seriously need an immediate answer to this as soon as possible!! thnx

metasploitable is not a turnkey based system so I don't think you'll get much help here.


You might want to try  at the metasploit community if you haven't already. Links can be found in the metasploitable announcement: http://blog.metasploit.com/search/label/metasploitable
