Summary 0001667: netcat v0.7.1 does not work with -u UDP option
Description I installed netcate v0.7.1 on Solaris 9 & 10 host. I tried to connect to a valid UDP port but did not work.

Additional Information After doing a little more investigating it seems that there is a problem
with netcat 0.7.1 and UDP on Solaris. It does not work

I found nc 1.10 source on under Solaris 8. I compiled the
software on a Solaris 10 host and it now seems to work correctly.

Per Sourceforge \"Goals of this project are full compatibility with the
original nc 1.10 that is widely used, and portability.\"

The cygwin project provides nc 1.10 for a netcat replacement.

The version you are referring to is actually the original version of netcat: [^]
The GNU netcat should be a fully compatible rewrite: [^]
According to the changelog the UDP issue should have been fixed in 0.7.1: [^]

It would be best if the issue were reported upstream and fixed there.
