Unix Tip #4587- October 2, 2014
Suppose we want to check whether the web server is running or
not, but we don't have any browsers ( lynx, IE, Netscape ...),
then there is a simple way of doing that. Just telnet to that
machine on the http port ( port no 80 in general).
And then, say "get /" (without quotes). If the webserver is running,
it displays the HTML script of the homepage or basic info and closes the
connection to the remote host.
% telnet yahoo.com 80
Connected to yahoo.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
HTTP/1.0 302 RD
Connection closed by foreign host.
