net/netcat-openbsd - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Arbitrary TCP and UDP connections and listens

The nc (or netcat) utility is used for just about anything under the
sun involving TCP, UDP, or UNIX-domain sockets.  It can open TCP
connections, send UDP packets, listen on arbitrary TCP and UDP ports,
do port scanning, and deal with both IPv4 and IPv6.
