How to test Network port connectivity from the vCenter server

On Vcenter servers, with the help of curl command, we can simply test connectivity. In this example, we are going to check the LDAP port connectivity (which is port 389).

Step 01: SSH into the vCenter server and access the shell

Step 02: Issue the command curl -v telnet://ipaddress:port_number

Connected means – the port is listening and accessible.
