Any sites/services similar to firebind.com, but free?

For those of you who don't know, Firebind allows you to test to see if certain ports or range of ports are open to outbound traffic.

Useful when troubleshooting why a particular application isn't working, as it allows you to determine if the network administrator/provider is blocking the necessary ports.

Unfortunately, this site which used to be free, is now a pay service ($5 one-time use or $25 monthly -- what a ripoff!!!).

Anyone know of an alternative service like this but free?

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for:

»www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2

If you look at the blue section, you can do a custom port probe and/or look up specific port information.

Again, not sure if this is what you want.

What I'm looking for is the opposite of that. I'm interested in what ports can get out (outbound/egress), not what ports can get in (inbound/ingress).

Google results are full of port probes for testing inbound, but can't really find much for outbound.

yeah, I was kind of thinking that. Wasn't sure if GRC maybe gave results for both ways.

Sorry I was't more help.
