To use Metasploit Pro, you need to activate it with a valid license key that you can obtain from Rapid7, the company that develops and maintains Metasploit. A license key determines the edition, duration, and number of users that can access Metasploit Pro at a given time. You can activate Metasploit Pro in either online or offline mode, depending on your network connectivity and security requirements.


Online Activation




Online activation is the easiest and fastest way to activate Metasploit Pro. You just need to enter the product key that you received by email from Rapid7 after purchasing or requesting a trial of Metasploit Pro. To activate Metasploit Pro online, follow these steps:



  • Go to Administration > Software License in the Metasploit Pro web interface.



  • Enter the product key that you received by email from Rapid7. If you still need a product key, follow the steps in [Getting a Product Key].



  • Click Activate Product.




Metasploit Pro will connect to Rapid7's servers and verify your product key. If the activation is successful, you will see a confirmation message and the license details on the web interface.


Offline Activation




Offline activation is an alternative way to activate Metasploit Pro if you do not have an internet connection or if you want to isolate your Metasploit Pro installation from the internet for security reasons. Offline activation requires an offline activation file that you can request from Rapid7 Support. To activate Metasploit Pro offline, follow these steps:



  • Contact Rapid7 Support and provide them with your product key and the hostname of the computer that runs Metasploit Pro. You can find the hostname by running the command `hostname` on the terminal or command prompt of your computer.



  • Rapid7 Support will send you an offline activation file by email. The file will be a zip file with a name similar to user_license.zip.



  • Copy the offline activation file to a USB drive or any other removable media that you can use to transfer files between computers.



  • On the computer that runs Metasploit Pro, plug in the USB drive and copy the offline activation file to a local folder.



  • Go to Administration > Software License in the Metasploit Pro web interface.



  • Click on Offline Activation.



  • On the next screen, click Choose File and navigate to where you saved the offline activation file.



  • Click Activate Product.




Metasploit Pro will load the offline activation file and verify your product key. If the activation is successful, you will see a confirmation message and the license details on the web interface.


Troubleshooting




If you encounter any problems or errors during the activation process, you can refer to the [Troubleshooting] section of the Metasploit Documentation for possible solutions. You can also contact Rapid7 Support for further assistance.


Conclusion




In this article, we have learned how to activate Metasploit Pro in online and offline modes. Online activation is simple and convenient, but it requires an internet connection and exposes your Metasploit Pro installation to potential network threats. Offline activation is more secure and suitable for isolated environments, but it requires an offline activation file that you need to request from Rapid7 Support. Both methods are valid and effective ways to activate Metasploit Pro and enjoy its powerful features and capabilities.
