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?

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!
