Published on Jul 02, 2021

In this article, I’m going to show how to install netcat on RHEL/CentOS 8. Let’s get started:

Installation

The nmap package contains the ncat package. If we install nmap, the ncat will be installed.

Install nmap using the command:

sudo dnf install nmap

Verification

Run this command to check ncat successfully installed or not:

ncat --version

You’ll see output like:

Ncat: Version 7.91 ( https://nmap.org/ncat )

Usage

Reverse shell listener with Netcat:

ncat -lvnp 13629

I’ll try to show more usage later.

That’s it. Thanks for reading. ?
