Exploit failed [unreachable]: Rex::ConnectionTimeout The connection timed out(remote host ip)
I keep getting this when I start to exploit, trying to exploit my xp machine but this keeps happening, I can not find the fix anywhere, I don't believe I am the only one getting this.. I am a beginner, just putting it out there.
msf exploit(ms08_067_netapi) > exploit
[*] Started reverse handler on 192.168.47.129:4444
[-] Exploit failed [unreachable]: Rex::ConnectionTimeout The connection timed out (192.168.47.131:445).
I followed this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WMbrcGzNbk
You asked this question and it was downvoted before. There could be a lot of reasons for this happening, your question is too broad, and lacks a lot of relevant information. For example, can you ping that host, is it running a firewall, it is vulnerable to that exploit. What you are experiencing is the host not responding back after it is exploited. This could be because of a firewall on either end (the attacking machine, the exploited machine). I would start with firewalls since the connection is timing out. From there I would move and set a different "LPORT" since metasploit tends to act quirky at times. E.g., set LPORT 2468. If that doesn't work, then jump on the metasploit forum and ask there, you'll likely get an accurate explanation.
Sorry, and yes I know, I asked this question before but didn't make a whole lot of sense. Thank you anyway
