Summary: Network Tool to concatenate and redirect Sockets
Ncat is a feature-packed networking utility which will read and write data
across a network from the command line. Ncat was written for the Nmap Project
and is the culmination of the currently splintered family of Netcat
incarnations. It uses both TCP and UDP for communication and is designed to be
a reliable back-end tool to instantly provide network connectivity to other
applications and users. Ncat will not only work with IPv4 and IPv6 but provides
the user with a virtually limitless number of potential uses.

Among Ncat´s vast number of features there is the ability to chain Ncats
together, redirect both TCP and UDP ports to other sites, SSL support, and
proxy connections via SOCKS4 or HTTP (CONNECT method) proxies (with optional
proxy authentication as well). Some general principles apply to most
applications and thus give you the capability of instantly adding networking
support to software that would normally never support it.
