Forum Thread: Alternative to reverse_tcp

Hello again!

So, let's assume my connection doesn't allow me to forward ports, it accepts ports I connect to and that's about it. (At least it's what I can tell.)

From what I understand, reverse-tcp basically starts a handler on my machine and listens > starts a client on my victim and connects.

So, are there any alternatives to the reverse-tcp payload?
It'll basically be the contrary.
For example;
I put a backdoor on my victim that starts a listener > my machine connects to it.

I can't find much documentation for Metasploit's payloads so any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you read my article on Metasploit payloads?

Consider using bind_tcp payloads. OTW has tutorials on it.

Nope, I probably used the wrong words when i was searching.

I'll do that, thanks!

do the reversetcp stuff work on windows 10? has anyone confirmed, as when I go to open the exe file on windows 10 it says the app cannot be opened

Did you crypt it? If so, try an uncrypted payload.

Do you mean encode ? Yes I encoded it. I'll try without and see.
