via telnet!!

On Windows:

run ‘cmd’ (Press ‘Windows-Key’-‘R’, type ‘cmd’ and ENTER)
or find the the command shell in your ‘start’ menu

on the command shell type:

your-host:~$ telnet 2006

On Mac OSX:

Find and run Terminal (in Applications/Utilities)
Now type into your terminal:

your-host:~$ telnet 2006

On *NIX:

I guess you should know how run telnet from a shell…

As an alternative to telnet you might also use netcat,
which has slightly better performance.

your-host:~$ nc 2006

habe es jedoch noch nicht selber ausprobiert…
