Ping server on a specific port

Terminal

You can’t ping ports, as Ping is using ICMP which doesn’t have the concept of ports. Ports belong to the transport layer protocols like TCP and UDP. However, you could use nmap to see whether ports are open or not:

nmap -p 80 example.com

The output will look like this:

nmap -p 80 google.de
Starting Nmap 7.92 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2021-12-08 10:59 CET
Nmap scan report for google.de (142.250.185.131)
