Telnet Command


Possible blocked ports


You can check if a port is open in your network by issuing the telnet command. If it is open, you will see a blank screen after issuing the command:

telnet [domainname or ip] [port]


  • [domainname or ip] is the domain name or IP address of the server to which you are trying to connect
  • [port] is the port number where the server is listening

If the port is open, you will see a blank screen. This will mean that connection is successful.

For example

Telnet 9001 ( this port i know is closed the result was this)


telnet 9003 ( This port i know is open the result was)
