    Not possible with JavaScript. You will have to use a server side language for that.

            First off you are wasting people's times by starting multiple threads on the same subject......

            Plus why would you want to do this? You have to give people a reason to give you code that can be used for harm....

              Sorry. Its definitely not for harm. I just want to run a simple test(I have an internet music player) and I want to test if the user is behind a firewall to minimize troubleshooting so it can tell them right away that the firewall and/or port is stopping them from accessing the audio files.

              Thats all, no harm or misuse is used, just a simple test.

                    It doesn't matter what he's got on the HOST side, it's the client side he's trying to scope out. No code on the server is going to be of much help.

                    Javascript isn't going to get him any results either, it's built in limitations make sure it can't be used in that fashion.

                    The only hope he has is that a Java application can be found/written to perform the checks he wants. He needs to find a good Java coding forum that deals with clients-side java code (not a popular subject these days).

                    An ActiveX control could also work but then you're limited to IE users only, for Internet applications that's not a real option but I thought I'd mention it.
                    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.
