Whenever I need to test a mail/ssh/web server, I usually just telnet or nc
into the appropriate port, i.e.:
$ echo "GET / " |nc -v yahoo.com 80
$ nc -v localhost 22
Connection to localhost 22 port [tcp/ssh] succeeded!
How would I connect to a nameserver and talk to it so I can know it is
working? I get as far as connecting to the port, but I don't know how to
make it send back anything meaningful.
