When I try to connect to my minecraft using the hostname that I put in my SRV record. The game gives me a error "connection timed out".

Is the hostname mapped to the correct IP address? Also, if you are inside the same network, you need to connect using the internal IP address not the public IP since routers do not allow bounce back traffic.

My hostname is mapped correctly and I will ask my friend to try connecting.
