nertstat tells if the port is open, right?

i want to know if server a can access port 1433 on the sql server (let's call this serverb).. can you do that through netstat?

netstat need to be run on the server itslef
go for sqlcmd
or what is your problem with telnet? you don't want to install it (win7/2k8?)
pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient"

Open in new window

telnet can be installed by the windows admin only and he is not available for a few days..

1)you gave a link for: Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Management Studio Express
how will that help to see if server a can access serverb's port 1433?

2)is pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient" a sqlcmd?

Install it on workstation/serverv and try to connect to server a.

>pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient" a sqlcmd?
this command install the telnet client on windows 7 & 2k8
but forget it if you don't have admin rights

leakim971/tangchunfeng,

netstat will work only if the local machine is having SSMS installed and opened to a database, right?

with telnet, we will force it to listen and tell us if it can listen.

also can you help me to read
TCP    127.0.0.1:1433         0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING

is 1433 running on 127.0.0.1, and no one (0.0.0.0) is listening.
