      Netcat is a computer networking service for reading from and writing
      to network connections using TCP or UDP. Netcat is designed to be a
      dependable "back-end" device that can be used directly or easily
      driven by other programs and scripts. At the same time, it is a
      feature-rich network debugging and investigation tool, since it can
      produce almost any kind of correlation you would need and has a number
      of built-in capabilities.

      Netcat is often referred to as a "Swiss-army knife for TCP/IP". Its
      list of features includes port scanning, transferring files, and port
      listening, and it can be used as a backdoor.

      Stable release 1.10 / 20 March 1996; 16 years ago
