Google's SRV records

After recieving lots of emails regarding SRV records issue in Google Apps, i finally tried that in myeslf……unfortunately thats true that Google has missing info. about SRV records.
As per refering to official Google’s help here .
It has missing info. about the location servers.
Here are those missing SRV records…
_xmpp-client._tcp.YOURDOMAIN.TLD. IN SRV 5 0 5222 talk.l.google.com.
_xmpp-client._tcp.YOURDOMAIN.TLD. IN SRV 20 0 5222 talk1.l.google.com.
_xmpp-client._tcp.YOURDOMAIN.TLD. IN SRV 20 0 5222 talk2.l.google.com.
_xmpp-client._tcp.YOURDOMAIN.TLD. IN SRV 20 0 5222 talk3.l.google.com.
_xmpp-client._tcp.YOURDOMAIN.TLD. IN SRV 20 0 5222 talk4.l.google.com.
so finally saying…..just forget everything and have these SRV records to get your domain’s Gtalk working from external IM services…
I created a public G.docs spreadsheet here for easy viewing.
Feel free to post for any issues…

  1. Thanks for this! Could you translate to what Enom offers for it’s SRV Editing each in the form of a field?:
    [Services] [Protocol} [Priority] [Weight] [Port] [Target (Hostname)]
    Much appreciated!
