DNA tests

#1
One of my Great Grandfathers was born out of wedlock, and his mother later married, there is some speculation as to whether the man she married was his father.
I know the parentage of his siblings and can trace that line down to living people.
So if I had a DNA test, and so did someone I am sure is descended from the possible Gt Gt Grandfather would it be possible to establish if we share an ancestor 4 generations ago?
I know this technique can be used to prove parentage, but would it work going back 4 generations and then down again?, and if so how reliable would the results be?

Any ideas could be very helpful, as I might have been researching people who are absolutely no relation for the last few years!
