Opening firewall for w3c validator

I would like to open our firewall to allow traffic from the w3c
validator in our development enviornment. I tried to open port 80
from (validator.w3.o rg), but that didn't do the trick.
What ports/IP address(es) need to be opened in our firewall to allow
the validator through?

You do realise the code is freely available and you can install it locally
don't you?

<URL:http://validator.w3.or g/source/>

Port 80 should be enough. Remember that just because something is available
at a certain address to you, it doesn't mean it's available to the
validator at the same address (i.e. it's no good giving it an URL).
