Name        : nc
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.109.20120711
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/usr.bin/nc/
Summary     : Reads and writes data across network connections using TCP or UDP
Description :
The nc package contains Netcat (the program is actually nc), a simple
utility for reading and writing data across network connections, using
the TCP or UDP protocols. Netcat is intended to be a reliable back-end
tool which can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and
scripts.  Netcat is also a feature-rich network debugging and
exploration tool, since it can create many different connections and
has many built-in capabilities.

You may want to install the netcat package if you are administering a
network and you'd like to use its debugging and network exploration

Update Information:

Allow UDP server to receive datagrams from multiple socket pairs with -k flag.
