Hey, so I want to use neovim as godot’s LSP, but it reauires netcat, in the work comuter though, the antivirus detects netcat as a malware (Carbon black cloud) is there any alternative to netcat, or some other way to use LSP?
Thanks all in advance.

I don’t think there are drop-in replacements to netcat (especially ones that you could install on a locked work computer). Any potential replacement would need to expect the exact same command line arguments to work.

Yeah, I guessed it was a long shot…
Is there a way to rename the expected nc command to something else? because it seems that the AV is dumb enough to not detect nc.exe if I rename it.
