    Is there any Netcat without Netcat for Windows? ..nice show :-)

    • Lares0 3 years ago

      Hey sheep!

      Telnet is not installed on my Windows machine, so I did it with plink which is the command line version of PuTTY.
      So it might be a litte bit different with the normal telnet.

      plink -P 8080 -telnet | cmd.exe | plink -P 8888 -telnet
