I know when it comes to  testing TCP ports that are open, Administrators use Telnet.
However most of the time Telnet service is not enabled on local PCs as well as on remote Servers.
It is a tedious process each time you need to test a port , you will have to enable Telnet service on local and Remote computers.

Any alternate tools ?

Thanks
