Netcat is a networking utility which reads and writes data across
network connections. It is a "back-end" tool that can be used
directly or driven by other programs and scripts. It is also a
network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create a number
of connection types. It provides the following main features:
* Outbound and inbound connections, TCP or UDP, to or from any ports.
* Tunneling mode which allows also tunneling such as UDP to
TCP, with the possibility of specifying all network parameters (source
port/interface, listening port/interface, and the remote host allowed to
connect to the tunnel.
* Built-in port-scanning capabilities, with randomizer.
* Advanced usage options, such as buffered send-mode (one line every N
seconds), and hexdump (to stderr or to a specified file) of trasmitted and
received data.
* Optional RFC854 telnet codes parser and responder.
