That seems ok to me: the TCP connection gets established, but a plain netcat listener doesn’t have any concept of broker data/messages/connection-handshake to be able to communicate in a meaningful way.  Are you just doing this to troubleshoot some other connection problems? What are you expecting or trying to do?
