Domain Name Support

Post by Dan-TXHills »

This was included as of v1.0.11 and I anticipate that it will be used by the larger groups in lieu of the numerical IP address - so - to clarify some things:
- Should the domain name be entered as, for example, www.domain.com or should it be http://www.domain.com (or, maybe just domain.com?)?
- Can this be entered into either the 'Join' box or as a bookmark (or both)?
- For whatever the syntax should be does this also require the addition of the port (e.g., www.domain.com:6112)?

Hi Dan,

It can just be the registered domain name, 'domain.com'.

Yes, it can be entered directly, or added as a bookmark (I need to change the header text on the bookmarks window to reflect this)

It works in the same way as the IP address does. So if you enter 'domain.com' then the default port 6112 is used. In which case it's the same as 'domain.com:6112'. You can of course choose another port.

This should be working in v1.0.11, I've tested the DNS lookup and it works, so you should be good to go. I haven't been able to test it fully, but let me know if there are problems.
