cURL can't find host

I've had a script that tests to make sure pages are up using cURL. I recently bought a new box and have been trying to put my script on there, but it's not finding the hosts that I want to test. Even weirder is that these hosts are behind my firewall and the entries are in the hosts file. I can use lynx to view the page with the hostname just fine. I can also use the IP address of the page I want, but I have several virtual hosts on that box. The other comparable box (same OS and packages installed on MDK 10) can use cURL without problems.

Thanks for any help
