is there any solution for

nc 1234 to retry till it gets connected and once it gets connected ; it will send an output via "nc 1234" on machine where it is listening on port no. 1234 .


//I want to send a message over "nc" once the connection is created by nc command else it will try reconnecting for connection via nc//


If you are using bash or similar shell, you could do something like the following;

cat message | while ! nc 1234 ; do sleep 1 ; done
