busybox: nc command password not visible while entering


Hi ,

I am using busybox version of nc (netcat) command.

I would like to use nc command as below.


<root> nc <IP_address> 23

It prompt user name and password . I could see password while entered.
But I do not want to show the password. It needs to be hidden (******).

When I tried with telnet <ip_address> ; it prompt user name and password. but I could not see the password while entering.


How can we do the same in nc like telnet . I am using same busybox version of nc and telnet.

Please share your comments.


Jacky

Exactly what have you typed?
Code:
$ sudo nc <ip-address> 23
Or something else specific. What do you mean by the notation <root>?
