inetcat - Opens a read/write interface via STDIN/STDOUT to a TCP port on a usbmux device
inetcat [OPTIONS] <DEVICE_TCP_PORT>
inetcat is a simple netcat-like tool that allows opening a read/write interface to a TCP port on a usbmux device and exposing it via STDIN/STDOUT.
- -u, --udid UDID
- Target specific device by UDID. Note that if this option is not specified, inetcat will connect to the first device found.
- -n, --network
- Connect to network device. The device needs to have WiFi sync enabled and needs to be paired with this computer for this to work. Please note that a device might close connections at any time to save power. This option will make inetcat connect to network attched devices only, unless -l is passed too (see below).
- -l, --local
- Connect to USB device. This is the default if no option is passed. If used together with -n, inetcat will first attempt a connection to a device attached via USB, and if not available attempt to reach a device via network.
- -h, --help
- Prints usage information.
- -d, --debug
- Increase debug level.
