NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade io-ninja -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade io-ninja -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

The word "programmable" speaks for itself. Now you can turn IO Ninja into your personal IO debugger and tune it to your liking with Jancy scripting Whether you need a non-standard protocol analyzer, a network device emulator or an IO testing utility, IO Ninja can be programmed to do the job. We also provide an IO Ninja IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to assist you in exploring and making use of scripting in IO Ninja.

IPV6 Support

IO Ninja is now IPv6-enabled! All socket-based IO Ninja sessions can listen on IPv6 or IPv4 adapters and connect to IPv6 or IPv4 addresses. So if you are looking for a terminal emulator to test IPv6-connectivity of your products, you have just found one.

Binary Data Support

Need low-level IO terminal to send binary data over TCP? Or send hex to serial port? Ninja would be the best tool for binary packets transmission. We not only have a modern and convenient hex-editor. Dig this - you can actually copy-paste C-language defintions of packet structs and edit them using property grid! Binary data transmission capabilities are matched by equally good support for displaying both incoming and outgoing (RX/TX) binary data in a communication log.

Redirect Anything-to-Anything

IO Ninja features session linking which turns it to a universal redirector. Create two sessions (possibly, of completely different nature), configure and link them together. All the data will be passed-through from one end to another and vice versa. Need to access a serial device attached to your PC from another machine across the Internet? In IO Ninja it's done with a couple of clicks.

Free For Personal Use

Last, but not least, IO Ninja is free for non-commercial usage. However, if you plan to use IO Ninja for work-related purposes, you have to purchase a license. If you already have a license for IO Ninja version 2.x.x, you can upgrade it to a commercial license for IO Ninja version 3.x.x free of charge.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
