With netcat you can do whatever you want, but that's not a good
thought IMHO. Use ssh instead. But this little idea came to mind,
works with ba(sh) (use cygwin on Win)

  #! /bin/bash


  while :
          echo -n "login: "
          read login
          echo -n "password: "
          read password
          if [ $login = $LOGIN ] && [ $password = $PASSWORD ]
                  /bin/bash -i
                  sleep 5

$ while :; do nc -l -p 2000 -e script.sh; done
