Ubiquitous Client for Redis Server: Netcat

Forget about redis-cli.

Just use nc

bash-5.0# nc -v  10.x.x.x 6379
10.x.x.x (10.x.x.x:6379) open
select 14

What is ncat?

     nc -- arbitrary TCP and UDP connections and listens

     nc [-46AcDCdhklnrtUuvz] [-b boundif] [-i interval] [-p source_port] [-s source_ip_address] [-w timeout] [-X proxy_protocol] [-x proxy_address[:port]] [--apple-delegate-pid pid] [--apple-delegate-uuid uuid] [--apple-ext-bk-idle]
        [--apple-nowakefromsleep] [--apple-ecn mode] [hostname] [port[s]]

     The nc (or netcat) utility is used for just about anything under the sun involving TCP or UDP.  It can open TCP connections, send UDP packets, listen on arbitrary TCP and UDP ports, do port scanning, and deal with both IPv4 and IPv6.
     Unlike telnet(1), nc scripts nicely, and separates error messages onto standard error instead of sending them to standard output, as telnet(1) does with some.
