inetcat - Opens a read/write interface via STDIN/STDOUT to a TCP port on a usbmux device


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.
