  1. I’m not an expert but maybe it has something to do with your dns cache?
  2. Thanks a lot for testing. It's reassuring to know you can access it that way too. Hopefully others can. I'll test with some friends soon.

    A huge thanks for both your help. This is now resolved.
  3. You're not indeed, neither am I. But like I said, I used a forced refresh on Google's DNS service and OpenDNS .. they check on like 25+ servers to find the right ip, getting it from the root ns, pulling the data out as it's supposed to be - so you're not using an ISP cache, etc. And compared their output against my local system.

    I've done this for 25+ years, can't call myself an expert, but I have enough experience setting up websites, clusters, scalable nodes, name servers, mail servers, irc networks, mc servers, etc. It's almost all the same, -- without actual access to the stuff it's a bit harder, because you dont have access to the local tools to check everything. But remotely you can do a lot with DNS/ns stuff, and that's all i can offer.

    With the srv internal redirect stuff it seems to work fine, on port 35565 for example.. but then the IP itself didn't work - both situations had a thing not working, quite strange.

    Who knows, maybe it's just ovh's anti ddos stuff seeing us try 5 times and going 'yeah drop that traffic when its the host' .. who knows.
