This new package adds netcat-1.10 to the Cygwin release, a simple but
powerful network tool.
Netcat (nc.exe) is a simple Unix utility that reads and writes data across
network connections, using TCP or UDP protocols. 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 may need and has several interesting built-in
You can find the documentation in /usr/doc/netcat.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Net"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: firstname.lastname@example.org . I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly. This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
