I guess checking for installed packages is the only option left now.
It is *not* out of the question. tcping doesn't need system privileges.
Download the tcping rpm... Then....
For example do this...
[egreshko@meimei ~]$ rpm2cpio tcping-1.3.5-7.fc18.x86_64.rpm | cpio -idv
Now, since I keep user specific binaries in ~/bin
[egreshko@meimei ~]$ mv ./usr/bin/tcping bin/
[egreshko@meimei ~]$ bin/tcping -t 1 imap.gmail.com
port 993 open.
Don't be bullied by the judgmental grammar and spelling police.
