I have 2 machines, Winodws and AIX

On the AIX machine, I have a service running on 10.14.5.65 at port 1414

From Windows, how can I see if I can access this IP/port.  ((in other words there is no Firewall issues or other)

Thanks

Telnet is the easiest way.  You may need to install the telnet client feature, but that is simple.
then telnet to IP Port like
from a command line;
telnet 10.14.5.65 1414
Connection denied means it is blocked.  An empty cursor or hung prompt means it connected.  You can CTRL C or Z to break it.  Give it a couple 10 seconds to fail.  If it hangs, it connected, and you can break the session to stop it.

First try ping or tracert that IP to see whether the AIX machine is reachable, then telnet as suggested above.

Are you running WebSphere MQ on AIX? If so, you can try connecting using a sample program from C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere MQ\bin
