As said in my other message to Andreas, busybox might not be compiled
with the nc listening feature.

Anyway, I've committed a patch which allows you to overwrite the "nc -l
..." arguments. Tramp's manual says

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
     The ‘nc’ command will be used with the ‘nc’ method.  On the remote
     host, a listener will be installed.  Unfortunately, the command
     line syntax for this has been changed with the different ‘busybox’
     versions.  TRAMP uses the following syntax (see ‘tramp-methods’):

          # nc -l -p 42

     If your remote ‘nc’ refuses to accept the ‘-p’ parameter, you could
     overwrite the syntax with the following form:

           `(,(regexp-quote "") "remote-copy-args" (("-l") ("%r"))))

     with ‘’ being the IP address of your remote host (*note
     Predefined connection information::).
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Best regards, Michael.
