Yep that's it! I move down to a single connection attempt
and it works fine. Apparently IIS is killing the conection
after the 1st failed attempt. Thanks for the info.

: Thank you. This seems to be a bug.

: WebBrute connections never time out. The application is
: single threaded and may be hanging up while waiting for a
: response. You may need to reduce the number of attempts
: connection. The webserver which you are testing may be
: closing its connection after the first or second failed
: attempt. If you continue to get the problem, your internet
: connection or the webserver may be slow or unreliable.

: The connection should time out and handle the error by
: halting WebBrute. This will be added to the bug list and
: fixed in the next version.

: The address has been fixed.

: Thank you for the suggestion. I'll look into it.

: : WebBrute gets stuck and I can't close the program. I can
: : do other
: : things like create and verify and even initiate other
: : attacks but it
: : always gets stuck. It does not matter what word or name
: : files I use. I
: : am running Win2k pro.

: : Make some other common HTTP requests we can use like
: : FrontPage Edit
: : Authentication. It does a
: : POST /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.dll HTTP/1.1
: : request. It would make it easier to ensure my folks here
