> That’s why netcat can be used as a replacement of telnet
In order to use netcat as telnet, you need to use the -t option. It does nothing more than rejecting all options, though, and it doesn't prevent weird characters showing on your screen.
It's also kind of amusing that the link to SecurityFocus doesn't actually lead there.
@james: What do you mean by universal? I'm not seeing any options that aren't supported by the original netcat.
@TheDude: I wonder which distros and which version of netcat don't support -p.
