For port knocking over at my old job, one of the SAs use to perform something like the following:

 echo 'blah' > tcpcat -a 192.168.3.1 -p 2222 && ssh beamin@192.168.3.1

I cannot remember the command that I am referring to as tcpcat. Does anyone know?

It may be called netcat, Lowercase nc is what the command actually is.
