Help about SRV record!

Discussion in 'BungeeCord Help' started by GuysImTristan, May 23, 2017.

  1. Help!
    Whenever I connect to my server using the DNS IP it leads me to the dedicated one I don't own.
    For example, I'm trying to connect to my server with the ip 777.777.77.77:25577. I used the one with the custom domain (name.target.ml) to connect but it leads me to 777.777.77.77 instead and not to 777.777.77.77:25577 as it supposed to do. Please Help!

  2. Do I have to wait for it to propagate? or do I have to input "name.target.ml:25577" the port?
     
  3. And Can I do this to the Bungeecord config?

    forced_hosts:
    factions.server.ml:25604: factions
     
  4. If your domain is myserver,com

    A: 'play'
    value: IP (no port)

    SRV: '_minecraft._tcp.play' (whatever your A record is).
    value: '1 1 25566 play' (port / whatever your A record is).

    Then, after a dns update, which should take a maximum of six hours, play.myserver.com, will direct you to your server.
     
  5. Does that work even without a Dedicated Ip?
     
  6. And is it really normal for me to connect to the 777.777.77.77 ip rather than to my own server w/ the port :25566 before the propagation/dns update?
     
  7. Avoid using SRV records without specifying subdomain.

    I use godaddy, they allow setting the srv directly to an ip#
    If you purchase an ip, you should be able to use an a name instead of srv.
