Netcat6 is a rewrite of the well-known netcat package, adding IPv6 support. Netcat6 can act as a client or a server for TCP and UDP protocols, in IPv4 and IPv6, and aims to be efficient with its data handling and to be easily extended to other "level 3" protocols. Its primary use, like netcat, is for communications development, making it easy to make or listen for connections and see what's coming through.
