How can I test if a port is open?
Using the telnet command you can quickly test if a specific port is open on a host in your network.
Telnet is disabled by default. To enable it:
- Go to the Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off
- Check Telnet Server and Telnet Client
- Click OK to have the features installed.
Using the telnet command you can quickly test if a specific port is open on a host in your network. To do this:
- Open a command prompt window
- Type telnet hostname port_number or telnet ip_address port_number
Replace hostname or ip_address with the name or IP address of the machine you wish to connect to, and port_number with the port number you want to test. You will see a blank screen if the connection was successful (indicating that the specified port is open).
