I need to check if client can connect to server on specific TCP port. Server is listening on it. Tried "telnet server_IP port" but telnet is stuck when I see that it's connected to the server. Seems telnet waits for specific reply from the server.
What I need is just to check if I can connect to the server from this workstation. Is there any way to do this? I would prefer Windows tools like telnet or something else.
EDIT: The main goal is to check that particular workstation can reach the server on this port. It's a part of a diagnostic tool. This tool is a simple script being run from the server to diagnos different aspects of this client/server system. It takes workstation name and checks if it's possible to connect to the server from this workstation. I'd like to check connectivity by a standard tool like telnet or anything else from Microsoft, preferably it should be already installed on workstation. I plan to run it by psexec from Sysinternals on workstation and receive the result on the server.
