Yeah paul, I read your solution it was very nice 🙂 and i understood it but I don’t understand why it is right to use nc on a machine where it isn’t. And it seems like I’m not the only one, already thought I overlooked something very obvious
I’ve got a question concerning this contest. In the contest it says: “Things got even worse, as Kris explored the machine’s file system only to find that Netcat was not included in this distribution, which appeared to be a stripped down Fedora Linux machine.” So there is no netcat on web1.
But in the answers from Wesley to question 1 it shows to use netcat on web1 and also in the answer to question 2 it says: “Well, on web1, you could make another Netcat relay, this time a client-to-client relay, as follows:
# mknod backpipe2 p
# nc –nv door1 445 0<backpipe2 | nc –nv krislaptop 80 | tee backpipe2"
Could anybody explain to me how to use netcat on a machine where it isn’t on? Or did I overlook something or did I make some other mistake?
Thanks for answering this comprehension question.
