Opening firewall for w3c validator

P: n/a
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 18.29.1.50 (validator.w3.org), 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?

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
http://10.0.0.1/... URL).
