Forum Thread: Is It Necessary Metsploit Payload Source Be Online When the Victim Open the File.


I want to infect a computer and I am using Metasploit with reverse connection, but I want to know is it necessary my computer be online when the victim open the file. I am asking because I do not know when it will be opened.

Yes. With a reverse connection, what happens is that when the victim opens the file, the file sends a request to the IP address and port you selected. Your computer will need to be listening on that IP address and port for the request in order for it to send the payload.
