Thank you Brenda, I would appreciate an answer, only because I've had some experiences of seemingly being unable to contact some 3rd parties via IP or hostname, then sometimes a short time later, I can and I don't have a ready explanation.

Here's another weird one - again, I can't guarantee this isn't our environment, but just say I type in an IP x.x.x.x in the Test field in the Connection Filter in VShell and hit Test - I've found that for a particular IP I'm testing at the moment, if I enter the IP properly (without any whitespace after it) it fails the test with "Access denied. Reverse IP lookup failed", whereas if I add at least one character of whitespace at the end of that same IP and hit Test, it succeeds, with "Access allowed". Seems strange.
