IPv4 NAT and ports question

Below is my intent for acquiring an ultra-cheap VPS, and I am wondering if this is possible with the IPv4 NAT redirecting that occurs.

I would like to setup a "dummy" bungeecord proxy which simply kicks players that attempt to connect to it with a message of an alternative IP they can use to connect to my Minecraft server (note: this Minecraft server is hosted elsewhere, I do NOT plan to host a MC server on the VPS). A player would only happen to connect to this proxy if

a) Their ISP does not support SRV records (I use an SRV record to direct players to my MC server IP and port)
b) The SRV record lookup somehow fails (which happens occasionally for whatever reason, seems to be a Java/Minecraft thing. https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/srv-re … ost-179962

The only requirements would be the Java Runtime Environment and an IP with port 25565, which I would create an A record for.

Re: IPv4 NAT and ports question

You wont get port 25565 on any LES VPS so I would say its not possible, you could try the littlehappycloud.net Netherlands with a dedicated IP and use haproxy on port 25565 to kick to LES boxes I suppose.
