newbie with networking knowledge

Post by sourcenz » Sun Jul 19, 2015 3:37 am

Hey guys,

im new to pen testing, but have a good background in TCP/IP and DNS and most other protocols in depth.

What chance do I have with pen testing if I have no programming knowledge behind me?

That's my first question.

Protocol knowledge is a good start but some programming knowledge is definitely a requirement if you want to do anything other than running scans.
