How to check if a port is open on destination workstation

With Ping utility, you can check if a host is up and running, but you can’t ping ports on remote systems (Ping is using ICMP which resides one layer above transport layer protocols like TCP and UDP).


You could use nmap to see whether ports are open or not

nmap -p <port> <domain>  eg
nmap -p 8080 yourDomain.com
