That would make it harder I guess, I was wondering if there is any way of using a command line tio do it or any application

If you had a working shell and command line telnet client...

Have you tried the telnet client over WiFi?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Not a clue, I usually use a CLI telnet client when I need one.

Tethering is a simpler method of testing, after all, its not the Android phone you're testing, its the Internet connection provided by the carrier...

I have been able to use tethering and check the ports 25 and 26 on my server from my mobile carrier, they don't seem to be blocked, as i get my servers message telling me not to spam etc... just like from my dsl connection.

thank you!
