 CLI Magic: netcat

Netcat is a great tool, and this is a well written introduction to it.

"The netcat utility works on the same principle as the cat utility, but over the network. This can be very useful in a number of situations, such as testing remote services, or for use in scripts, or just to copy files over the network. According to one source, you can even clone a hard drive over the network using netcat and dd."
