To copy file1 to file2 on the localhost, run:
socat tcp6-listen:7777 file2
to set up a listener, and:
socat tcp6:[::1]:7777 file1
to connect to the listener and transfer the file.
If you have two hosts, you could try the same, running the first command
on the server, and the second command substituting the ipv6 address of
the server in place of ::1.
