Go Daddy domain forwarding to a TeamSpeak server

Post by TimB » Fri Jul 26, 2013 4:40 pm

Alright, so I've spent the better half of the day trying to get this set up with no success.

Server address: tfac.ts.nfoservers.com
Type: TeamSpeak Server

I purchased this server, paired with a domain from Go Daddy (lets face it, advertising TheFactionTS.com looks better than tfac.ts.nfoservers.com) and I've been trying to get it properly forwarded and I feel like I'm very close, but it still isn't working.

Thus far, the support staff have guided me to setting up a SRV record to the domain and pointed me to the thread explaining them in terms of NFO's own hosting: http://www.nfoservers.com/forums/viewto ... =19&t=9280 and I paired that with this information from Go Daddy: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article ... it_value=4.

Between these two, the best I've come up with is this list of settings:
Service — _ts3._udp
Protocol — _ts3._udp
Name — @
Priority — 1
Weight — 1
Port — 16030 //The port number the server is on
Target — tfac.ts.nfoservers.com

This record seems to have had no effect however, as both before and after setting it this way, the TeamSpeak client has been unable to connect to the server by way of the domain. The domain properly forwards the connection to the server's IP, based on pinging it, and when I attempt to connect it successfully resolves the hostname, however it still won't connect.

You'd need to use this instead, most likely:

Service — _ts3
Protocol — _udp
Name — @
Priority — 1
Weight — 1
Port — 16030 //The port number the server is on
Target — tfac.ts.nfoservers.com

But, I'm not terribly familiar with how that host handles it. You should consider contacting their support directly.
