    Hello,

    I have updated my Kali 2022 zSecurity Apple M1 VMWare by downloading and installing the newly released Kali 2024 zSecurity Apple M1 VMWare version. I have both machines in my VMWare. I downloaded and installed Powershell Empire in exactly the same way on the new machine as in the 2022 version, however the server side doesn’t ever seem to work. The client seems to go up and running but when I enter the command: powershell-empire server in the first terminal window… it just goes to a certain point and then stops…. it never displays any active clients info etc. When I test it on my VMWare virtual Windows machine, nothing ever happens, it just does not seem to connect to any active agents. Yes… I have disabled Windows Defender security, and I have done everything by the book, over and over again, but nothing ever happens. I still have the 2022 version of Kali with powershell-empire installed on the same Mac, and when I run that one it works perfectly without issues!! Is there something in this new version of custom Kali that needs tweaking to make Empire work properly? Please help. I need some specific instructions, as I am not well versed in more advanced debugging techniques.

    Hi!
    Can you share a screenshot with the results after running the server?

    Hi Diego, I have attached links to the screenshots of my Empire session. As you can see in the upper terminal window (server) it just stops at that point and does not continue further. No error messages (except for the csharpserver error, which I also get on the 2022 version as well but it still works properly), but it does not continue to a status bar at the bottom displaying agents etc. I have purged and reinstalled the 2024 zSecurity custom Kali 3 times, and there is no difference… I get this every time. I try to run the attack anyway, but no connection is ever made. It just hangs at this point, and goes no further.

    The client side however, seems to work properly and becomes active after I hit execute, but when I open the executable on my virtual windows machine, nothing happens, no agents display as being connected. This exact same process works perfectly using the custom zSecurity Kali 2022 machine.

    Hi!
    The output of the server is just as expected. Can you share the next screenshots:
    – the results of ifconfig in kali and ipconfig in windows
    – the network settings in VMware for both machines
    – the options used to create the listener and the agent
    – the content of the .bat file created by empire

    Greetings!
    Diego
