    Hi,

    My registar (1&1) doesn't allow me to change SRV record, they just don't provide the service.

    I would like to do It via ISPconfig3. Is it possible? (maybe 1&1 block it?)
    If yes, do you have a process? Because I have the manual, i've read the DNS part....but I don't understand what i'm supposed to do.

    This is the conf I need to enter:

    Code:
    _xmpp-server._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 5 0 5269 xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-server._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt1.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-server._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt2.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-server._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt3.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-server._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt4.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  
                  _jabber._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 5 0 5269 xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _jabber._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt1.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _jabber._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt2.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _jabber._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt3.xmpp-server.l.google.com.
                  _jabber._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5269 alt4.xmpp-server.l.google.com.    
                  
                  _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 5 0 5222 xmpp.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5222 alt1.xmpp.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5222 alt2.xmpp.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5222 alt3.xmpp.l.google.com.
                  _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 20 0 5222 alt4.xmpp.l.google.com.
    The purpose beeing to use Olark chat in gmail (pro).

    Any chance you can help me??

    Thank you very much and have a great day,

    Example:

    _xmpp-server._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. IN SRV 5 0 5269 xmpp-server.l.google.com.

    You add the SRV record to the dns zone "MYDOMAIN.com.":

    Hostname: _xmpp-server._tcp
    Priority: 5
    Server record: 0 5269 xmpp-server.l.google.com.

    Thank you for your answer.

    I forgot to mension that there is no dns entry at the moment in the dns tab.
    I could add one for this domain, but will it interefere with 1&1 conf?

    I'm a little scared 'cause I have no chance to test it before :(. The domain is already live and the chat thing is set to this domain :(.

    A domain can only have one master server. If yo want to use the dns server from 1&1, then you have to add the srv record there and not in ispconfig.
