Can curl make a connection to any TCP ports … – Stack Overflow
Can curl make a connection to any TCP ports not just HTTP/HTTPS
I need to check for an open port, for example: 11740.
Is this possible?
asked Dec 6 ’13 at 22:22
Yes, it’s possible, the syntax is curl [protocol]
If you’re using Bash, you can also use pseudo-device /dev files to open a TCP connection, e. g. :
exec 5<>/dev/tcp/127. 0. 1/1234
echo “send some stuff” >&5
cat <&5 # Receive some stuff.

I’m trying to test the SSL connection on one of my servers. The server is behind a load balancer (LB) so it’s listening for SSL connections on the port 8090.
I have use the –resolve option to test when talking to the LB which listens on port 443.
curl –resolve ” ”

curl simply ignores the port and goes with 443. Of-course, this causes the DNS cache to miss and I end-up using the public DNS IP…

If –resolve is not working out, you can specify the Host header (you might need to supress certificate warnings with -k):
curl -k -H ‘Host: ‘ ”
or with more verbose terms:
curl –insecure –header ‘Host: ‘ ”
