This is my first post to Null Byte. I want to know how I would install Meterpreter using an executable on a Windows machine if I had direct access to the machine to install a file. I'm testing this out on VMs and cannot get it working. I'm using the following link. https://www.offensive-security.com/metasploit-unleashed/binary-payloads/
I'm not sure what I'm missing. I can generate the executable, fire up the multi handler listener but it never connects. On the Windows 7 machine i don't have antivirus installed, when i double click the executable nothing noticeable happens on windows or Kali. From the windows machine i can ping kali and get a response so it appears they can communicate.
I'm not sure if i have the settings correct for the "LHOST". LHOST should be the IP of the Kali box, correct?
Thanks in advance, i have spent hours searching trying to find the answer on how to do this before posting.
