    I submitted some firewall rules today which will be implemented before
    all the destination hosts are live on the network. In the past I put
    a perl script on each source server and controlled them from a central
    location to initiate a connection to each of the destinations to check
    the connectivity. In this case that will not work.

    Is there any scriptable way to know why a connection failed from the
    source? For example when a failure occurs...to know whether the
    connection was blocked by the firewall or it made it through but the
    remote host was not listening.
