    This is a bit old, jsut noticed it -

    Well, the whole idea of netcat is that it just handshakes and leaves an open
    connection.

    The whole idea of a proxy is that you handshake with it and send it a
    request, and it handshakes with the remote server and sends that server a
    request. So you could handshake with the server and give it valid requests
    for whatever service it proxies, and it would give you the answers that it
    is programmed to give for those requests.

    So basically, no, the only way would be to write a netcat proxy.

    How do you initiate a connection with netcat when behind a proxy server?

    Is there a way of doing this or will the proxy just drop the request.

    Thanks
