Custom fm port - srv dns record

Hi all

 

I have a couple of fm servers, which should be accessibly from the internet.

I am only able to get 1 public ip address......

As they use port 5003 I have to do some port mapping in my router such as:

 

123.123.123.123:14000 -> 192.168.1.5:5003

123.123.123.123:15000 -> 192.168.1.6:5003

 

This works well, but I wanted to point a domain name to each server.... E.g. fm1.example.com

However, normal A records just point to the ip address and takes no interest in ports.

 

I've found that it should be possibly to create an srv record that point to a specific port. I have tried, but can not get it to work....

In a srv record, you need the service name, which I think should be fmpro-internal. I am just not sure that FM checks the srv record...

 

So:

Do you know whether FM checks for srv record info ?

Do you have any good ideas to other ways to do this ?
