Ncrack:brute forcing with sock4 or 5 helps?i have a slow pc and i found this:

--proxy <type://proxy:port>: Make connections via socks4, 4a, http.

would be --proxy socks5://

helps? thank u


It will not help. If the bottle neck in performance is your slow PC, changing the route of your traffic to the destination will not change the performance of your PC.

Using a proxy adds an extra hop in between you and the destination, so from a performance perscpective, it will actually have a negative impact (more latency).

  • very logical answer thanks,you know i just finish the test and is a bit faster with 1% faster,but boss is there something to make ncrack much faster for windows os?i know u can use knu parallels for linux os etc... – Muntean Cosmin Sep 17 '16 at 20:54
