    I am using the evaluation version of Port Explorer and have encountered a strange problem when I use the "Resolve" located within Port Explorer.
    Does anyone else have the problem?

    With Port Exolorer opened, go to Utilities and select Resolve. When I enter
    www.diamond.com.au as a "Host" and select "Resolve Host", I am inform that its' IP is 64.91.255.87 and it is located in the United States.

    If I enter 202.6.126.12 as an "IP Address" and select "Resolve IP", the Host Area reports it cannot resolve the IP Address and the map shows it is in Australia.

    I am behind a Netgear hardware firewall using NAT. I do not have any software firewalls running.
    Here are the results of "Resolve Host":
