useful tool – socat

4 Sep 2008

A useful tool I’ve come across (thanks JB) – socat. As the homepage says, sort of netcat++.

From the manpage: Socat  is a command line based utility that establishes two bidirectional byte streams and transfers data between them. the streams can be constructed from a large set of different types of data sinks and sources (TCP, UDP, SOCKS, files, processes, pipes, file-descriptors, readline, .).
