In some situations or on some locations, I'm struggling with restricted outgoing traffic. For example a restricted LAN where outgoing traffic is only allowed on limited ports.
I know how to check or test my connection or network for incoming traffic on various ports. But I can't find how to do the opposite: checking on what ports I can make outgoing connections from my device.
Does anyone know how to do this? E.g. a way to probe a range of ports (regardless to what external server or IP).
I assume there a different ways to do this for different platforms: in this case I'm on OS X.
Note that I'm not dealing with a firewall or restriction on my own device, it's not a matter of local system configuration. I'm connected through a LAN which appears to have a very restrictive firewall or router or something, and I need to find out to which ports I can still connect to the outside world.
