What does the RESTORE button do on the manage domains page do. I have been unable to connect to the remote site since Dreamhost changed servers. If I press the RESORE buttonwill this fix my problem?
The Restore function recovers your site files from a backup of your choice. The restore function is useful in cases where you have unintentionally removed directories or files from a domain account.
Noting that your problem is with connection, rather than missing files or having accidentally deleted a domain folder, I think the process you want would be:
[color=#00CC00]Panel > Domains > Manage Domains[/color]
Click Edit next to the troubled domain.
Scroll down and click [color=#0000CC]Change Settings[/color]
This procedure will refresh the internals over at DreamHost and (hopefully!) restore your ability to connect to your remote site without the need to trouble Support about it.
