Introduction

pynetcat is an extremely small netcat implemented in Python. This was primarily implemented for Red Hat/Fedora rescue images which had Python but little else, as an implementation small enough that you could type it in by hand at the terminal.

It also has compelling features such as transfer progress and cleanly closing the network socket and stdin/stdout, where some other netcats will hang at the end.

Requirements

Python: a current version (1.5.1+) to work. You can get source (and binaries for selected systems) from www.python.org.
