On linux, one can connect to a server by typing nc pwnable.kr 9000 on a terminal.

On windows, this does not work in Powershell nor cmd, and also Putty when using Telnet looks at first like it connected, and then whenever I enter something it exits, which is not the behaviour on Linux. So what is the correct way to access this server on Windows and send commands to it?

  • ncat is available for Windows. Download and install that. – n8te Sep 8 '17 at 8:14
  • Ok, thank you. (I just thought that would be something Putty is capable doing) – Emolga Sep 8 '17 at 8:15
  • I installed it, what should I do now? the commands still do not work. The new application "Nmap - Zenmap GUI" with the above command just shows me that the server is running and the port 9000 is open, but I can't see how to send inputs to the program that the server is running. – Emolga Sep 8 '17 at 8:35
  • Nmap is something different (it's a port scanner). To use ncat is virtually no different than using nc in Linux. From command prompt type out ncat pwnable.kr 9000 – n8te Sep 8 '17 at 8:38
