  Consider using the "hose" program from the Netpipes package.


  I suspect it can be a convenient wrapper for the network functionality of
the nnrp.c program you posted, allowing you to concentrate on just copying
data around.

The netpipes package makes TCP/IP streams usable in shell scripts. It can also
simplify client/server code by allowing the programmer to skip all the tedious
programming bits related to sockets and concentrate on writing a

faucet is the server end of a TCP/IP stream. It listens on a port of the local
machine waiting for connections. Every time it gets a connection it forks a
process to perform a service for the connecting client.

hose is the client end of a TCP/IP stream. It actively connects to a remote
port and execs a process to request a service.

  It might even be as simple as

  hose usenet.victim.com nntp -fd3 sh -c "cat <&3 & cat innbuf.out >&3; cat >&3 ; sockdown "

  If you need to attach a descriptor to a network socket for a quick hack, use
faucet or hose.
