My Question was closed due to it allegedly being too broad.

Is it because my question can have multiple correct answers? Is it because I did not specify which part NTLM I am interested in?

Please help me understand why it was considered so. Also I am not able to edit or comment to fix the question. So what can I do to improve my question?

    1/ You haven't told us what you have already tried. 2/ If you perform some reading on NTLM it will answer your questions.

  • @DavidPostill, I read about NTLM for more then a day and I tried creating virtual machines with windows 10 and doing RDP and file sharing from one machine to another. To no avail.

  • I found that I can use windows xp to create the scenario. Just to have one windows xp access other windows xp share will produce ntlm traffic. Too bad I am not able to add answer - so someone else would not waste so much time to figure a way to produce ntlm traffic. Thanks anyway David for trying to help.

  • If you are willing to answer your own question (perhaps clarifying it a little first) then I'm willing to reopen it.
