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.
