How to find out the port state?

I want to check the port state. I know there are plenty Portscanner implementations out there but most of them only assume that a port is open if no error was thrown, otherwise not.

func GetPortState(network string, address string, timeoutInMilliseconds int) {
	timeout := time.Duration(timeoutInMilliseconds) * time.Millisecond

	connection, connectionError := net.DialTimeout(network, address, timeout)

	if connectionError != nil {
		// inspect error

		// return state ...

	defer func() {
		connectionCloseError := connection.Close()

		if connectionCloseError != nil {
			// return error

	// return state

would someone mind helping implementing the function so it’s working correctly?

Thanks in advance

How are you defining an open port?
