Hi I am trying to complete the overthewire challenges. They require you to extract passwords and login as different users to proceed. Passwords are quite lengthy and I am not able to paste the in in terminal for what I believe is OS X design. I have tried circumventing that using sshpass and putty's plink, but to no success. What way can I do that?
The process below works all the time for me, This requires your mouse. Handy for long strings & passwords.
- Copy text/string using mouse
- In terminal, using the mouse, position to location and right click to paste
- Terminal will show pasted text.
NOTE: Terminal will not display the pasted string(password), Regardless, hit enter and it should work.
