Spiffy. Netcat sounds like a cool network testing tool. Windows or Linux versions. Free.

Update: old link died. new link to a GNU GPL'd clone of the @stake tool

Update 2: @stake tool is still available (including a Windows version)

Update 3: Microsoft has bundled several similar tools for testing pptp connections and other firewall issues with it's recent support kits.  Google for pptpclnt.exe, pptpsrv.exe.  See tutorial here:
