Network scanning using Netcat

I started a windows vm on my network which I needed RDP access to, I didnt know its IP address. I could have used Nmap but it was not installed so I decided to use Netcat instead.

I have not had a chance to test it but network scanned my entire subnet in 2.5 minutes.

So the above command with scan each IPĀ in the submit and probe port 3389 (RDP) to see if its open, if it is it will display the IP.
