    SRV does not seem to be resolving


    I'm trying to setup a TeamSpeak3 server on my VPS running Debian 8, but unfortunately it's not working the way I want it to work.

    I own a domain name, let's call it I want my clients to be able to connect to my TeamSpeak server using, but not using To achieve this I've changed the default voice server port from 9987 to 9988 and set up a 'A' record called 'ts', which is pointing to the IP of my VPS. I then created a 'SRV' record with the just created A record as the target. At this point, both DNS records are resolving just fine when I use a lookup tool.

    So, I started my server and tried to connect using just and it's not working. Below is the output of my client log:

    As you can see, it's not resolving the SRV record for some reason and I have no idea why this is happening. I can however connect to it using the port. So works just fine. At this point I don't see what's wrong. I did search the forum for similar problems but I didnt' really find an answer. I hope someone around here can help me out.

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: If any of you need any more screenshots or logs please tell me, I will gladly provide you with them.

    Provide real domain name. How do you expect us to assess the situation, if we don't know where to look?

    Thank you for your reply. I've edited the OP. The full logs are now available. Below are also some screenshots of my DNS settings.

    The SRV record. Please note: It says _udp in the protocol field, but this is a visual bug. The actual value is _udp.ts which has been confirmed by my host(NameCheap).

    Doing a lookup shows that they are being resolved.

    Works for me. Maybe some DNS delay.
