Mssqlclient.py is one of the many scripts included in impacket repository, which is a collection of python classes to work with network protocols.
mssqlclient.py is an MSSQL client that supports SQL and Windows authentications and also, hashes! In addition to that, it also supports TLS.
Now let’s see how to install mssqlclient.py in Kali Linux step by step.
As I mentioned above, mssqlclient.py is one of the many scripts of impacket repository. So, we need to clone the repository in our system in order to use mssqlclient.py. And even before that, we need to check if python is installed in our system or not. (In most cases, python will be there in the system already.)
Install mssqlclient.py in Kali Linux
So, to install both version of python (just to be fail safe!) run following command as root:
pkg install python
pkg install python2
Clone impacket repository from git using following command.
git clone https://github.com/SecureAuthCorp/impacket
Now, run following command to change directory to impacket and to install requirements.txt
pip install -r requirements.txt
Just in case, if you run into some problem, run following commands.
pkg install pyhton2
pip2 install -r requirements.txt
Now, run following command.
python setup.py install
To access mssqlclient.py, run following command
Now, here if you run into problem, then go back one directory and run setup.py with pyhton2. (In short, run following commands!)
