Target version:-


I am coming to use ChatSecure with my personal XMPP server but I have connection problems when I try use SRV record settings.

- My XMPP server is prosody 0.9.8 running on standard ports
- My phone is CyanogenMod 11
- My ChatSecure is 14.2.0a but I have never been able to connect with any version of ChatSecure

If using the default settings for ChatSecure (use SRV records), ChatSecure never connects. If I disable "Do SRV Lookup" and manually configure server (host.example.org) and port (5222) ChatSecure works instantly.

I can connect to server with any desktop client - e.g. adium, pidgin, jitsi, gajim.

From looking at logcat, I can see ChatSecure trying to resolve example.org SRV records but gets it wrong

(DNS SRV) resolved: example.org=example.org:5222

when example.org should reslve to host.example.org

Output of "dig"
