Well, as you might guess I have tested this with my own equipment. My
silly router runs a more recent version of busybox, which requires the
"-p" prefix for nc's port specification:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# nc -l 51257
nc: bad address '51257'
# nc -h
nc: invalid option -- h
BusyBox v1.19.3 (2012-08-08 12:53:46 CEST) multi-call binary.

Usage: nc [-iN] [-wN] [-l] [-p PORT] [-f FILE|IPADDR PORT] [-e PROG]

Open a pipe to IP:PORT or FILE

        -e PROG Run PROG after connect
        -l      Listen mode, for inbound connects
                (use -l twice with -e for persistent server)
        -p PORT Local port
        -w SEC  Timeout for connect
        -i SEC  Delay interval for lines sent
        -f FILE Use file (ala /dev/ttyS0) instead of network
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I don't see how to unify both syntax variants. Therfore, I will add a
check for nc prior the first call, in order to determine what to
use. Alternatively, it could be made configurable; haven't decided yet.

This might take some days. For further testing (which would much be
appreciated!), you could use the following patch:
