Metasploit Basic Command Tutorial
There are many new user of metasploit (beginner of metasploit) ask use to write a basic introductory article about the basic metasploit command and basic usage of metasploit, however we have shared different advance and mid level metasploit tutorial on backtrack 5 you can learn different commands from these tutorials but here is the list of the best and most common commands that are used in metasploit for different purposes. Later on we will share meterpreter commands as well.
Metasploit is the database of all exploits and a software that contain information about different exploits so here is the basic usage of metasploit, I am using backtrack 5 machine for this tutorial however if you are using other Linux distribution or windows OS than it is fine but the requirement is Metasploit.
So on your terminal type msfconsole to start metasploit console.
- root@bt:~# msfconsole
- root@bt:~# msfgui
- root@bt:~# msfconsole -h
- msf > help
Ping command of msfconsole is to check the alive host and so on.
- msf > ping 192.168.1.45
Show exploits is a command to check all the available exploits on metasploit
- msf > show exploits
Show payloads just like show exploits, show payloads will show you all the available payloads on metasploit.
- msf > show payloads
Info command will give you more information about any exploits and payloads.
- Msf>info <exploit>
- msf>info <payload>
Use command will give metasploit an instruction to use a exploit or payload.
- msf > use exploit/windows/smb/ms08_067_netapi
- msf exploit(ms08_067_netapi) >
