Meterpreter session vs shell



  • What is the meaning of "meterpreter session"? My understanding is it is a session that we can send commands to the host for execution. And a meterpreter session is created when we don't get a shell.



  • Meterpreter is one kind of shell. So, you can send commands in both a meterpreter session and a shell.

    You configure the exploit to use what you want, either meterpreter or some other command shell. Metasploit doesn't decide that for you.
