/dev/tcp/ doesn't work with bash

  my bash ( 2.05b-7 on unstable) does not recognize the /dev/tcp
redirect. Executing
	$> echo 'GET index.html' &> /dev/tcp/ 
I get:  bash: /dev/tcp/ File not found.

Do I have to activate it somehow? Or did I misspell it?

Ordnung nennen wir den Teil des Chaos, in dem wir aus Gewöhnung Sinn zu
erkennen glauben.

Order is called that part of chaos, for which inurement lets us believe
