 WebBrowser control can't browse to IP address

Hi. I have a webbrowser control in my VB6 Pro application
that works fine on my development machine (NT 4.0, SP6).
It can browse to both web addresses (www.yahoo.com) and IP
addresses ( http://www.*-*-*.com/ ).

The problem is on some (not all) other pc's, the browser
can browse to web addresses fine, but can't get to an IP
address. It doesn't cause an error, it's like it gets
lost, and the DownloadComplete event never fires.

Is there some .dll or other type of file these machines
are missing? Two machines I've found the problem on are NT
4.0, but it works on other NT's.

Many thanks in advance,
