telnet test of cyrus sync server

I'm trying to write a quick routine that will test connectivity to a cyrus
sync server for monitoring purposes. I can connect to port 2005 using
telnet, however, once connected, I cannot disconnect using A QUIT or
anything else I can think of that might work with the IMAP server itself.
Every time I issue a command I receive:

NO Please authenticate first

I would really like to avoid authenticating just for this quick connection
test. Is there anyway to quit without authenticating or just punching up
the telnet escape sequence?
