Add support for SRV DNS entries.


  • Project Moderator

    Feature:
    Add support for service records (SVR) when connecting with a hostname.
    Description:
    The dns resolver should be extended to support service records.
    Motivation:
    This feature should be added to the client, so people can connect to servers listening on non default ports without providing the port, or to connect to a random server out of a pre defined pool of servers. This would benefit communities/clans/hosters with more than one server as well as players who want to connect to a server through console or through bindings.

    Examples:

    connect tdm1.mw3.example.com could connect to server1.example.com:27015.
    connect tdm2.mw3.example.com could connect to server1.example.com:36015.
    connect tdm3.mw3.example.com could connect to server2.example.com:37015.
    connect tdm4.mw3.example.com could connect to server3.example.com:38015.

    connect tdm.mw3.example.com could connect to server1.example.com:27015, server1.example.com:36015, server2.example.com:37015 or server3.example.com:38015.
