CHK

chk is a small CLI tool to check connection from a local machine to a remote target in various protocols.

The following protocols are currently supported:

  • ICMP (Ping)
  • SSH
  • TCP
  • HTTP

chk is indended to help with basic testing of the connection. It can be used in place of combining other tools and does not have any dependencies other than the executable.

With every connection error message, chk will attempt to show an indicative message that will show exactly what the error is and why the connection fails.

Installation

chk can be used by simply downloading the latest Golang executable from the releases page. For comfortable CLI usage, put the executable in a place that is under your PATH environment variable.
