Utility to Test Ports

Utility to Test Ports

RE: Utility to Test Ports

Thanks IPOTS. Perfect timing because I'll actually use this later in the afternoon to test some ports on a VMware App server issue I have.

RE: Utility to Test Ports

sorry to tell you, the command window comes up for a split second then disappears.

You have to copy this to your user profile.
Open the command prompt.
Change the directory to your user profile.

i.e. C:\Users\Dave

Run paping -p 7070


RE: Utility to Test Ports

Why don't we just use the following in powershell? That's what my IT department said btw, not me. Don't shoot the messenger.

Test-NetConnection -p 7071

RE: Utility to Test Ports

paping is a continuous ping.
Powershell is just a regular ping

Having the continuous pings helps in troubleshooting.
Having access to the Powershell is sometimes restricted without Administrator access.

This is just another option to have.
