Autodetection of server details through DNS

In order to simplify setup of Lime CRM clients it is possible to set things up so that the correct Lime CRM server address is automatically detected and used by the client. This is done by adding a DNS record of type SRV on the following format:

_lime._tcp.<domain name>

The record should have the following parameters:

<server name>
<port> (default 443)

Note that users still have to open the “Select database” dialog but the server name and port fields will be filled automatically.

To check that the DNS record has been correctly added the nslookup tool can be used:

C:\>nslookup -type=SRV _lime._tcp.lundalogik.local
Server:  laban.lundalogik.local

_lime._tcp.lundalogik.local    SRV service location:
          priority       = 0
          weight         = 0
          port           = 443
          svr hostname   = lime.lundalogik.local
lime.lundalogik.local  internet address =
