Make sure that your firewall does not restrict outbound access to the PayPal IP addresses. Thus, you should add PayPal IP addresses to the list of trusted IP addresses to permit traffic to and from PayPal and prevent problems with processing transactions. PayPal recommends using the DNS hostname to determine the IP addresses of their servers. For more information see 'IP Address for PayPal servers' on PayPal Merchant Technical Support.
