It does, thank you for the details. As I said earlier, the IPs for the
validator are subject to change, so ideally your system would allow
access from any host that resolves to validator.w3.org. Or better even,
if you wish to keep your test data under locks, would be to actually
install the validator on a server in your local network.

That said, the current lineup of IPs for validator.w3.org are:

128.30.52.49
128.30.52.50
128.30.52.13
133.27.228.132

you may also want to throw in the IP for the server that hosts the CSS
validator...
128.30.52.34

HTH,
