telnet host port

e.g.

telnet www.google.co.uk 25 will test port 25 on www.google.co.uk

Note that those only work if something is listening on the machine to that port and will accept a telnet connection.  Instances that require a secure connection aren't going to succeed either though you may be able to use ssh to connect to some of them.
