Accounting servers not responding

Hi there,

I set up new server and moved my TS3 to run on that.

Hostname and IP-address remains the same old /

Now my server seems to be having problems when its trying to connect the accounting server.

2021-04-17 10:24:25.661702|ERROR |Accounting | |Could not connect to accounting server after multiple attempts, shutting down server


** server can’t find NXDOMAIN

None of the IP-addresses are responding to ping with the new server yet they are responding to all other machines?

And yes I have the accounting port open:
Chain INPUT (policy DROP)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT tcp – anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:2008
ACCEPT udp – anywhere anywhere udp dpt:2008

Both servers are in same IP-block (new and old) so cant understand how the connecting problem would be about on my settings.

Old server (now with IP
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4005ms

New server (
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
12 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 11252ms

Either your did not forward the ports to the right IP or firewall/router blocks the connection
OR Cloudflare has the new IP blocked or has problems with routing.

Dont have any FW or router that I should think about and the old server was using the same IP-address earlier. I just shutdown all services, changed IP-address and started the ts3 on new server with same IP that the hostname is binded.

Hmm… Well dont know why but now its been running over 2h and nothing has changed.

Yet I cant still ping hosts or

Well I need to monitor this for a while what happens next. Feels just weird that I can ping those hosts from any other computer but not from this server that I’m running the TS3 server on.
