It is simple. If I dont have a root access, I cannot install ncat and use it as my server. => Use what instead?
ncat works like any other dynamically-linked binary. The required
libraries (.so files on Linux) must be present in order for it to run.
There is no permission requirement there. If you compiled it statically,
it would include all the library code in itself, and not require
Some behaviors require root permission: listening on port numbers less
than 1024 or spoofing source address, for instance. This requirement is
not specific to Ncat; it should affect all programs equally.
