A couple things that I would like to add to the netcat2 feature request list:
- Probably a given, but you should be able to compile as a single,
statically linked execuable on all platforms (may offer other versions
Excellent point -- that is critical! I have added it to Ncat.html.
- Support for requiring a password to connect to the NetCat2
I don't think a clear text password is acceptable, even for this sort
of application. I added a requirement that authentication and
encryption of the channel be supported as an option. Maybe this can
be done securely and easily with OpenSSL.
Also, I added a note that we should understand and learn from other
Netcat reimplementations such as:
Socat -- http://www.dest-unreach.org/socat/
Cryptcat -- http://farm9.org/Cryptcat/
OpenBSD nc -- http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/usr.bin/nc/
so-called GNU Netcat -- http://netcat.sourceforge.net/
Am I missing any others?
