Memcache Server - 2 minute tutorial

How to telnet to running memcached

Memcached works on tcp/udp protocol. That means, you can connect to its port and communicate with it using its comamnds. That is what we will do now.

Open a console in linux or a command prompt in windows and run the command 'telnet ' for eg. 'telnet localhost 11211'. If your memcached is up and running, then a successful connection will be set-up.

Now you can issue the memcached commands and talk to it.
