Is there a way to ping certain server:port?


Recommended Posts

This script bellow runs well on my local machine, but on the hosting it's always "timed out":


ini_set( "display_errors", 0);

$info[] = array('name' => 'SERVER', 'address' => 'IP', 'port' => 'PORT');

$ic = sizeof($info);

$timeout = 3;


    echo (fsockopen("", 25565, $errno, $errstr, $timeout))? '<span style="color: blue; font-weight: bold;">ONLINE</span>' : '<span style="color: darkred; font-weight: bold;">OFFLINE</span>';

We have a firewall on all of our systems that block requests (in or out) for any non-standard port. If I had to guess I would say the port you're trying to reach is not allowed through the firewall.

It shouldn't be an issue getting the port opened on your server though you would need to submit a ticket for this so we can escalate it to our sysadmin department for review. Please submit a ticket at, provide us the path to the script(s), the port(s) you'd like opened, and any other relevant info and we'll get this taken care of for you! :)
