  • Minecraft-server-list.com "Unable to connect to server" using SRV record

    +2 votes

    I switched hosts for my server, and the new host does not allow me to buy a dedicated IP (port 25565), so I use an SRV record. I also changed the port that Votifier is using, so I went to update it on the server lists that I'm on, and minecraft-server-list.com says: Unable to connect to server () - Server appears to be offline. It must be online to add it. The server is online, and everyone can connect to it in minecraft. Other server lists can also connect to it. I even tried to uncheck the "Votifier Enabled" box, and it still couldn't connect and wouldn't save, so it's not a problem with Votifier. The thing is, I didn't use an SRV record with my old host because they offered a dedicated IP option, which my new host does not. Minecraft-server-list.com says it supports SRV records as IP's, so I'm not sure what the problem is. And I don't want to use the actual IP of the server on the listing.

    EDIT: I tried using the IP you connect with through the SRV (play.bonkcraft.us), but with the port number it uses without an SRV (25875) and it worked. I tried changing it back to 25565 after it connected successfully, but it said the same thing it did before. Is there any way I could get it to not use the port number?

    you have to list your port in the ip address on the post i had the same issue as mine is play.legendaryender.net and it wouldnt work that way so i had to do play.legendaryender.net:5589 and it worked i dont know what is going on but it works when you add the port

     

    ensure your port is listed in ur SRV so that it will work with the port

    they should still be able to connect with using the port
