Yes the administrator will probably see your connection attempts and he may contact 'authorities'...

theres couple of steps before u attack a computer, network, site etc...

First off You should Fingerprint them and learn as much as possible

U should connect to gateways so you wont get caught that easly

when u actually do get in, always remove EVERY trace possible so u wont get caught

here are to GREAT papers written by Van Hauser of The Hackers Choice (THC) group

Remember never go in blind, or you will prb get caught and blamed for thousands or millions of dollors worth of damages because u simply loged in.

before u start bruteforcing make sure u have a nice big wordlist so you actually have a chance of breaking user/password
heres a link of A LOT of wordlists
Good artists copy, great artists

Brute forcing remotely is rather painful and long..
why not just find a vulnrability every box has a vulnrability at some stage :p whether it be the owner "social engineering" or a software flaw.. It's alrite for thing's like hotmail etc but hey..
The wise make mistakes, the fools repeat them
When you have eliminated the impossible, that which remains, however improbable, must be the truth
