Summary0005479: cryptcat - help is wrong
g0tmi1k@kali-dev:~$ cryptcat -h
connect to somewhere: nc [-options] hostname port[s] [ports] ...
listen for inbound: nc -l -p port [-options] [hostname] [port]
    -g gateway source-routing hop point[s], up to 8
    -G num source-routing pointer: 4, 8, 12, ...
    -h this cruft
    -i secs delay interval for lines sent, ports scanned
    -l listen mode, for inbound connects
    -n numeric-only IP addresses, no DNS
    -o file hex dump of traffic
    -p port local port number
    -r randomize local and remote ports
    -s addr local source address
    -u UDP mode
    -v verbose [use twice to be more verbose]
    -w secs timeout for connects and final net reads
    -z zero-I/O mode [used for scanning]
port numbers can be individual or ranges: lo-hi [inclusive]

so it says about using `nc` and not `cryptcat`.
