Actually the script accesses the payment processor via a domain name, the IP address were provided for my hosting company to allow access for outgoing traffic through their firewall. DNS issue?

They are fixed IP addresses provided by the payment processor - the same for everyone using their service. Is there a way I can test if a port is open for outgoing traffic? My hosts claim to have opened 4430 for outgoing. I've looked at yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports but not sure if it is only checking for incoming as it says the posrt is closed.

Useful comment. Unfortunately neither my hosting company nor the payment gateway can shed any light on this or suggest anything else to try. That is why I am asking here.

a traceroute is showing timeouts for one IP, weirdly a telnet through port 4430 is able to connect to that IP address but not the other one they supply...? I really don't know anything about this stuff.
