I don't precisely know what netcat is (I can guess -- a program that lets you cat things across a network), but I was intrigued by the commands listed under notes, below.

Subject: [expert] Error with a large File

I am using dd and netcat to save the image of cd from one computer to another.

on the machine with the cd I do dd if=/dev/cdrom | gzip | nc 12300

on the server (which is running Mandrake 8.2)I do nc -l -p 12300 > disc.img

But after the server has received about 130megs. The pipe breaks and says this error message:

"file too large"

<Currently, no significant content below this line.>
