You might be able to use Scott Klements HTTPAPI and go directly to the
server with a connection and fall back if it fails (don't know if
installer is on the i or on a PC/Mac...)

Actually, no, it's our new ISP, and it's simple enough to disable that "service"; the problem is that if a customer has an ISP with that "service," it would wreak havoc if the hardcoded URL for our FTP server failed to resolve, and got redirected.

Then again, if their AS/400 is reaching a DNS at all, there's no reason to expect our FTP server's URL to fail to resolve, so I may be straining at gnats here (and at this moment, I don't just have a camel to deal with, in an unrelated project, but an elephant).
