I just tested it on our main wiki site (running on site5), and it works
as expected.

You're sure 'enable_version_check' => '1' is in your config file?
You've got {{checkversion}} at the top of a page?
You can access the following URL?


Other than that, I really can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work.  

I would put some debug statements in the checkversion.php file...maybe
'echo $ip' after the call to gethostbyname(), and 'echo $latest' after the
'$latest = array_pop...' call.  If you get a valid IP address, but
there's no output from 'echo $latest', then it's likely the connection is
timing out for some reason unrelated to checkversion.
