Can’t login to metasploitable after downloading it

I have installed metasploitable and go to login to it like in the video, when it prompts me to login I type is the username said in the video, but when I go to type it the password it won’t let me type at all until it times out. If you know how to fix this that would be great, thanks.

Hello Loganm,

Please try to redo the process, so reboot Kali and make sure you start postgresql first:

service postgresql start
start msfc
service metasploit start

If that didn’t help, then please uninstall Metasploit community using the following command:


Then install it again and let us know if you get any errors during the installation. If it was successful, then open Firefox, log in to the main page of the scanner and see.
