Is there any way of using CMD to check if a port is open on a remote pc? Ive tried the ping command with ipaddress: portnumber but that doesnt work.

Ive also check the technet on microsoft and have been unable to find anything that will give me a clue how to do this.

Was just trying to trouble shoot a small issue with my hope pc from work, and see if a port at home was open or not, etc.

Thanks for any help.

You could use a portscanner or you could use a website based scanner like pcflank. Being at work though I would make sure nobody is gonna get upset your port scanning comps from your network :p

*Edit* - ok I forgot pcflank uses the machine's ip that your on ... I have seen other web based port scanners that allow you to enter an ip (though the majority don't as it could be used for evil).

you can open a command prompt and type netstat -a to see all connections to your pc...
or try cmd prompt type telnet <ip address> <port number> and see if it answers

yes but a netstat on your machine doesn't always tell you what others see from the outside ... it doesn't take into account routers/firewalls and the like.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
