Well, it depends what *kind* of intereference. If you want to test
throttling, it won't do no good, and netcat/netrw might be of better
help there. If you want to test openness, might as well use nmap, as it
can very rapidly test which ports are blocked.

traceroute is useful to diagnose *where* and why the port is blocked.
