    you're probably looking for netcat (quite often called 'nc'), which you
can find on freshmeat.  just in case you don't like that, you can also look
for 'netpipe' or 'netpipes'.

    and just in case none of those suit your fancy, i liked a little program
called 'sock' which can be found at
ftp://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/pub/local/mj/linux.  i'm not quite sure why i
preferred it over nc, but i did :).
