I agree that a "portable Ncat" would be very useful to many people.
We've had this in the Nmap TODO file for quite a while:
o Investigate and document how easy it is to drop Ncat.exe by itself
on other systems and have it work. We should also look into the
dependencies of Nmap and Zenmap. It may be instructive to look at
(http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable) which is
built using open source technology from portableapps.com, or look at
"The Network Toolkit" by Cace
(http://www.cacetech.com/products/network_toolkit.html). For Nmap
and Nping, we may want to improve our Winpcap to load as a DLL
without requiring installation. There is a separate TODO item for that.
If anyone wants to investigate and try to find a solution for this,
