DNS update error


#1

I’m trying to change my ip-address for the A records, but I keep getting following error
“DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Invalid proxied mode. Record cannot be proxied (Code: 9041)”

What might be the problem?

Sound like you may be trying to :orange: a record which is in a private IP address space. If you have 192.168 or 10.10 record those aren’t internet routable so you’d want to make those records :grey: (click the orange and make it gray) so that it is accessed directly rather than trying to route through Cloudflare.

Hi. Getting the same issue here:
DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Invalid proxied mode. Record cannot be proxied (Code: 9041)
I even deleted a previous A record, then tried to put it again and got this error, so uhm, any clues?

Uhh, guys… I was trying to paste in an IP address with a leading space… i.e.

" xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"

Deleting the space fixed it.

CloudFlare should sanitize this input and improve the UX please. Thanks very much.
