netcat/ncat server file as a web server

I will use the ncat (part of nmap) tool:

1. first create a bash file with the following contents, and save it as, and chmod+x on it:
echo "HTTP/1.1 200 OK"
mydate=`date -R`
echo "Date: $mydate"
echo "Server: Apache"
echo "Last-Modified: $mydate"
echo "Accept-Ranges: bytes"
echo "Content-Disposition: inline; filename=\"$1\"";
mysize=`stat $1 |awk '/Size/{print $2}'`
echo "Content-Length: $mysize"
echo "Keep-Alive: timeout=30, max=300"
echo "Connection: Keep-Alive"
echo "Content-Type: application/octet-stream"
cat $1

2. ./ the-file-to-be-downloaded | ncat -l -vv 8001

3. point your brower to your http://YOURSERVERIP:8001, your file will be downloaded
