DescriptionDo you think Netcat is a really powerful tool?. So I do, but I don't use most of the features of this great tool, and, at the same time I would like to have some other features. That's the reason I wrote Netkitty (nk for friends).
Check the features below or go for the full tutorial to learn how to get the most from NetKitty.
Features and StatusThe main features of NetKitty are:
- Can establish several TCP and UDP client connections simultaneously
- Support of rfcomm Bluetooth connections
- Can listen to several ports simultaneously
- Hub mode (Poor's Man IM): Anything coming from any connection is forwarded to any other active connections.
- Shell mode (Poor's Man telnet): Basic remote shell... really basic
- Less than 500 LOC
