request to replace netcat

Post by voidzero » 06 Jul 2016, 00:56

Hello,

Could netcat please be replaced with net-analyzer/netcat6? It has the same options, but more, and IPv6 is better understood. The netcat that is now installed does not support addresses like

Code: Select all

fe80::75:35ff:fe00:101%eth0
and I use this stuff when I want to transfer files between two hosts that haven't got IPv4 or IPv6 addresses yet... link local always works. Except for with the currently used netcat! So please consider replacing it with netcat6.

Cheers.
