Help with SRV Record please.

Discussion in 'Systems Administration' started by ItsWaj, Mar 30, 2019.

  1. I have setup a A record which is =
    Code (Text):
    connect.example.com. 60 IN A 111.111.111.111
    As well as an SRV record which is =
    Code (Text):
    _minecraft.tcp.mc.example.com. 1800 IN SRV 10 5 25569 connect.example.com
    Could anyone point out what I have done wrong please? I followed a guide online and its not working. I have put the mc.example.com in my minecraft client and tried to connect but after 20 seconds it just says Connection timed out.

    The srv records needs to use _tcp with an underscore in front. Also I'm not sure if that depends on the dns manager provider but I'm used to only putting the subdomain in there so try _minecraft._tcp.mc without the domain part if changing to _tcp alone doesn't work.
     
  3. I think what he has will work if he adds the missing underscore.
     
  4. I've added the _. Still nothing in game. Is there an x amount of time I have to wait before it updates?
     
  5. Your TTL is 1800 seconds or 30 minutes, so you might have to wait that long.

    You can check it by using (on Windows) nslookup -type=SRV _minecraft._tcp.mc.example.com
     
  6. Left it all day, just checked now and it is working perfectly. Thanks for help guys/gals.
