Netcat is a featured networking utility which reads and writes data
across network connections, using the TCP/IP protocol. It is designed
to be a reliable "back-end" tool 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 exploration tool, since it can create almost
any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built
Koji scratch build:
[fab@laptop024 i386]$ rpmlint netcat*
2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
[fab@laptop024 SRPMS]$ rpmlint netcat*
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
this package already exists in fedora ?
please check if is the same.
yum search netcat
nc.i386 : Reads and writes data across network connections using TCP or UDP
nc6.i386 : Netcat with IPv6 Support
socat.i386 : Bidirectional data relay between two data channels ('netcat++')
I guess it's the same tool.
