Your post piqued my curiosity and I can confirm your experience with rarcrack. It didn't work for me either, even after playing a bit with the options. As the software hasn't been updated since 2011 maybe there are incompatibilites with modern rar files. Who knows...?

john-jumbo seems to work with the instructions you linked. I tried it with a password protected rar file I have (simple password: 6 letters 1 digit) but gave up after eleven hours. It would seem my C2D is a bit underpowered for fast bruteforcing. Bring tea, scones, and lots of patience if your computer is on the slow end.
