As I said, that port is usally closed. If you have control on
those machines, you can turn the echo service on (but beware of
security risks - I'd rather suggest to write a little server
script that answers with "I'm here" to everyone that connects...).
Otherwise, you can use any other service the machine provides to
discover if it is up or not.
Anyway, asking questions never hurts, so don't feel sorry. :-)
