DNS - Email & ftp not working

email

#1

Hello people!

I recently have connected my website with cloudflare and suddenly ftp & email didn’t work any more (apart from the Webmailer. That is working). Yes I know you get these question regularly, but I couldn’t solve it. My Website is working fine.

The important DNS entries look like this:

A | ftp | ipv4 IP | Automatic | Status: grey
AAAA | ftp | ipv6 IP | Automatic | Status: grey
A | mail | ipv4 IP | Automatic | Status: grey
AAAA | mail | ipv6 IP | Automatic | Status: grey
A | ftp | mailout IP | Automatic | Status: grey
AAAA | mailout | ipv6 IP | Automatic | Status: grey
MX | mydomain.tldr | ipv4 IP | Automatic

Status of mydomain.tldr & www is of course orange. My Hoster is HostEurope.
My Website get attacked regularly (without success so far), so I would prefer to continue using cloudflare.

Sry to bother you…did I miss anything?

That should be all right. What’s the domain?

Also keep in mind, if you use the same IP address for FTP and mail as you use for HTTP an attacker can still get hold of your IP address and bypass Cloudflare.

Your ftp host should work, it does not point to Cloudflare. As for your MX record, it points to an IP address, whereas it should point to a proper hostname. Presumably your mail record.
