    bash
    sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999
    bash
    sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999

As of version 2.8r1, you can provide an additional argument timed to the prompt command which will show the process’ uptime on the prompt.

bash
sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999
bash
sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999

The prompt will then show with the process’ uptime.
