NAME

dnetcat - opens a DECnet connection
 

SYNOPSIS

dnetcat {-h|--help}
 
dnetcat [-v] [-z] node[::|[::] ]object
 
dnetcat [-v] [-f] -l object
 

DESCRIPTION

dnetcat is a netcat(1) like tool that opens a DECnet connection and copies all data between the standard input/output to/from the socket.
 

OPTIONS

-v

Be verbose. Prints useful (debug) messages.

-z

Zero IO mode. In this mode a connection is dropped directly after it is opened. This can be used to scan if the remote side listens on the given address and object.

-l

Listen mode. In this mode dnetcat accepts connections on the given object.

-f

Fork on new connection. This let netcat accept multiple connections in listen mode. This is ignored if -l is not given.

--help, -h

Prints a small help.
 

EXAMPLES

This program can be used as 'ProxyCommand' for ssh(1). You may use it via command line like this:
ssh -o 'ProxyCommand dnetcat %h ssh' [...] mynode
 
or you may use it in your ~/.ssh/config like this:
Host *::
ProxyCommand dnetcat %h ssh
 
This will enable you to connect to any DECnet node by adding "::" at the end of the node name like this:
ssh mynode::
 
For more information on ssh(1) see it's manpage.
