I'm just trying to get netcat to respond to an incoming curl request, but I think the problem I'm having is that netcat doesn't know when
Here is the content expected to be sent back, it's stored in
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Here is the netcat command being run in one terminal shell:
sudo nc -l -p 80 < response.txt
Here is the curl command being run in another terminal shell:
Could someone help me understand what I would need to do in order to get this working as intended.
I can get this to work by using netcat instead of curl for the connection, but ideally I'd like a non-netcat client (such as curl or a web browser) to make a connection to localhost:80 and have the first instance of netcat respond.
