I have been using this for my internal ethical hacking tasks to brute force telnet access to Cisco network devices (routers, switches etc) with great success. It is very fast and stable tool. Have been using it on Kali Linux lately.

I have used Cygwin to install Hydra 8 on my Windows 7 OS, however, when using the "./xhydra" command, I receive this error: "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display". Any advice?
