Send a file with netcat
I’ve mentioned how to send a file with IPFS and also how to send a file with an assortment of modern techniques. Here’s yet another method to send a file. It’s only a line of bash, and you can get a nice progress bar and upload to any server that is listening on a certain TCP port.
On the server computer,
server.com, that is receiving the file, just do:
netcat -l -p 6000 > somefile
On the other computer that is sending the file just do:
cat somefile | pv | netcat server.com 6000
