AsteriskNow and NetCat or NC


I am setting up a my new AsteriskNOW box to send the Caller ID info of a caller to my Windows Media Center 2005 using the YAC Listener on the MCE.


Apperently NetCat is not installed out of the Box. I am a big Noob when it comes to linux, unix and Asterisk. However My Asterisk box is all setup now working 100%.

I am following the article located here: … tification

I have absolutly no idea how to install NetCat on AsteriskNOW, because of the buggy web interface i am doing almost everything on CLI, but I cant seem to find a strait answer on how to manage packages on AsteriskNow.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
