Updates Server

edited August 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
My webhost is being very silly and for some reason restricts the external connections made by scripts from my website. It's for security reasons, so i suppose it makes sense. I need to request them to allow connections to a particular domain from a specified script. Can someone please tell me which domain the Update Extensions script connects to to check for newer versions and which script/page makes the request? Many Thanks!

    the script is ajax/updatecheck.php and it checks

    One more thing.... My dumb hosts are asking for the port that's used to make the connection! (Am i right in thinking that its a blindingly obvious "port" thats used for php connections?) I vaguely remember something about this before but can't remember what it is. Can someone please let me know..... Thanks

    Port 80, and if they ask, it uses an HTTP connection.
