i posted this on another thread but i figured it would be helpful on its own. I believe it to be a bug in the zip command but I need someone to confirm if I'm just an idiot. click spoiler for a step by step through the problem. It is an answer also (unfortunately) so don't proceed if you haven't at least TRIED to complete it. So i figured out what is going on if you cannot complete mission 2 Spoiler you need to - cd smtp - zip inbox - name it something like chicken - htp chicken.zip hive.niteteam4.com yada yada - done. IF YOU - zip smtp/inbox - name chicken - htp chicken.zip hive.niteteam4.com yada yada it will not count for some reason even though that should be the same as - cd smtp - zip inbox - name chicken - htp chicken.zip hive.niteteam4.com yada yada not sure if it isn't suppose to work like that but it will not work for what ever reason for me if i do it that way. if you name it inbox it seems like it sort of messes up too. i spent a good hour doing the exact same thing (using stinger-reset a lot to start fresh unfortunately). maybe i'm just a big ol dummy though. hope this helps you. another problem i encountered: Spoiler Oh and sometimes when i go to upload the file it will just freeze up after the user name and continue to make new lines that wont actually execute commands forcing me too have to stinger-reset after exiting the game and coming back.
