Can not connect to accounting servers

Hey everyone,

I recently moved my TS3 server to a new host and now I can’t connect to the accounting servers. The server itself works fine, until it shuts down after trying to contact for two hours to validate the license.

My firewall allows outbound traffic and I can ping for example However I can not ping any teamspeak domain:

If I start the server I get the following logs:

Any ideas on what may be the problem here?

Edit: I also checked Project Honey Pot for the IPv6 address of my server and everything seems to be fine. (message “We don’t have data on this IP currently. If you know something, you may leave a comment.”)

Please check your Firewall to see if the following Ports are enabled and make sure that they are not blocked by the firewall or ask your Host

It looks like your server is IPv6 only.
Too bad!
It is apparently too hard to flip a switch in the Cloudflare dashboard to enable IPv6 support for accounting service, so theres none :slight_smile:

You need to get an IPv4 address somehow.

Or we need to go a step forward and try to add IPv6 to our system.

Will discuss that with IT tomorrow.


Thank you! Added an IPv4 and it works fine now. Kinda supprised that this isnt supported currently… Now I have to pay an additional 70 cents per month just to have the privilege to use an outdated system :man_shrugging:

Would be awesome! Looking forward to get an update on this!
