post bottom here, and also trim the reply please.

As I highlighted before, you wrote:

  $ nc 23
  bash: /usr/bin/nc: Permission denied

the message is from bash and it reports that bash can not execute
nc. This happens when a Antivirus denies access to the program.
For example Symantec always blocks any nc.

Please note that nc replies to

$ nc --version
nc: unknown option -- -
