openssl for netcat use

If you ever have a need for a pipe to netcat,
you might want to want to enhance your connection with encryption, here is a short example running the connection with openssl, instead of netcat.

openssl s_server -cert /etc/ssl/server.crt -key /etc/ssl/private/server.pem

yeah, that’s right, you need a certificate. I reused the one of my webserver.

openssl s_client -connect server:4433

this gives you a link, if combined with -dtls1, you even get UDP.
