Testing server connections
You have two servers. Server A needs to connect to server B on port 4443 using TCP. Server B is already listening on that port. What quick test can you run from server A to verify that firewall ports allow the connections through to server B on port 4443?

telnet B 4443

I figured it was something simple like that. If the firewall did reject a connection to that port I'm assuming it would simply result in an error message, right?

yes. If connection is estabvlished, you will see something like:

Trying B...
Connected to B.
Escape character is '^]'.
