  • Why not use telnet?

    Example: telnet serverfqdn 443

    No, my example will only test port 443.
    To test POP, you would type telnet serverfqdn 110

  • Don't know of any script that can test all this for you, but with telnet it will only take you seconds to test it.

    You can of course also run tests on on the rules you have configured in ISA.

  • Hi

    Is this something you want to do on a regular basis or just a one time test to make sure that everything is open.  Using telnet is the best solution for a one time test and you could use the connectivity verifiers in ISA for regular checking.
