    "...via IP address getting around my DNS block.  I am trying to find the IP Address the client is using so I can block it
    Thoughts or ideas?
    "

    The first idea is: this is unrelated to OpenDNS and therefore off-topic...

    The second idea is to run a sniffer or analyzer to see what connections are established and to use this information for firewall rules.

    I had hoped that the OpenDNS logs would show the ip addresses but does not.  This Application/ Client is the only hole I have found through OpenDNS so that is why I asked the question.

    I have blocked the listed ports from the internet I can find.

    "I had hoped that the OpenDNS logs would show the ip addresses but does not."

    Definitely not.  As you said, using IP addresses means getting around DNS - i.e. DNS is not used and not needed in this case, so OpenDNS doesn't see that, because you don't send anything related to OpenDNS.

    "This Application/ Client is the only hole I have found through OpenDNS"

    No, every use of just the IP address (instead of the domain name) is a "hole", because it doesn't require DNS.  This is how the internet works, not a limitation of the OpenDNS service.
