How to check if Redis Remote Server is running

If your Redis cluster is hosted somewhere on the cloud and you are wondering whether you can connect to your Redis cluster or not, here I will show you how you can quickly check if your Redis Remote Server is running and accepting connections.


  • Redis Cluster
  • sudo privileges
  • redis-cli installed


  • Telnet should be the first and the easiest thing that you can try. You can change your Redis port and endpoint accordingly.
    telnet 6379

    If the connection is successfully established you will get:

    Connected to
    Escape character is '^]'.
  • Another proper way is to use redis-cli.
    redis-cli -h -p 6379

  • If you don’t receive the above outputs, probably your Redis Cluster either has a firewall that blocks you, it’s within a private network or the cluster is down.
