Netcat for ppmac to ppmac communications


Recommended Posts

According to (http://netcat.sourceforge.net/) Netcat is a featured networking utility which reads and writes data across network connections, using the TCP/IP protocol. 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 would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities.


Since NetCat is included in the Ppmac feature set it can be used for Ppmac to Ppmac or in more general terms Ppmac to “Other Computer” communications as long as the “Other Computer” can also run NetCat. Also, if the underlying network between the Ppmac and “Other Computer” is a Real-Time network which runs the TCP/IP protocol then the NetCat link will also be Real-Time.


To see how this works look at the following examples.
