Command line tool to test for alive (or listening) TCP ports
Use IPPortCheck for troubleshooting eDirectory/NetWare services, GroupWise MTA/POA ports, etc.
Often, you want to see if a particular port on a given host is open. Like "ping", it's nice to know if something is alive when you're trying to troubleshoot a possible communications problem. With IPPortCheck, you can effectively "ping" a given port on a give host. If you get an "alive" response, you know the communications channel is open.
