    Determine if a port is open on Remote Server

      I am trying to write a function to determine if a port is open on a remote server. I would like to do this within ColdFusion.

      See below for what I have come up with so far

      The problem I have with this method is that on failer it takes 20 seconds to return. I have found methods using InetSocketAddress that allows you to set a timeout but that does not seem to be available within ColdFusion

      I am certainly not stuck on Sockets if there another method that will work.

      I am using CF 7 on Server 2003
