 netcat tutorial: Copy hard disk or partition image

netcat utility (nc command) considered as TCP/IP swiss army knife. It reads and writes data across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol. It is designed to be a reliable “back-end” tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts. At the same time, it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities.

This howto explain migrating data between two server hard drives using netcat over a network. It is very easy to copy complete drive image from one server to another.
