Netcat through Terminal
Installing NMAP to run via Terminal

First thing is of course unzip the folder. This install, compared to my last post regarding NMAP, will be slightly different. Once unzipped, there will be the primary folder holding all the files. Open your CMD/term, and run the ADB push command. For example, if the file is on my desktop, i will run
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb push C:\Users\User\Desktop\netcat\netcat /system/bin
This will copy all the files within the netcat folder.

To access the man page, type in nc -h and hit enter. If you installed the files correctly, you will get the following results.
