Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
*ncat* now correctly sets environment variables in UDP mode Previously, the *ncat* utility did not set environment variables for User Datagram Protocol (UDP) connections properly. As a consequence, user's scripts failed in UDP mode. This update sets some internal values, and environment variables now are set properly.
