Finding salt with password and hash?
I have the plaintext password and hash, but don't know the hashing algorithm. I can't recreate the hash using online tools* so I think the hashing algorithm is salted, but I don't know what the salt is. What are my options here?

*On that note, can hashcat generate hashes from plaintext passwords instead of just the inverse? It would help me figure out if it is salted or not.
That's the wrong way. Usually you find out about an unknown algorithm by RE the binary which calculates it.
