Ventrilo?

Does anyone know how to set up a Vent Server.... Got the software, not sure how to set it up.
Wanna use it for a private channel for gaming.

Re: Ventrilo?

I have a Ventrillo server hosted with Typefrag https://www.typefrag.com
I've had it for about 3-4 years now and they've been great. It's also very cheap (especially with the £:$ being where it is at the moment)
Definitely worth a look and you can always PM me if you decide to use it and need some help Smiley

Re: Ventrilo?

There seems to be some fairly good setup instructions on the Ventrilo website - all looks a bit complicated to me  Huh
I'm thinking you might need a static IP and to open the right port on your router to allow people to connect. I'm not sure what pings would be like on a home-based server either.
If I were you I'd just make people donate me money every month and use that to pay for the server on Typefrag. If you don't need many users (e.g. 10 or less) it's $5.99 per month which is about £3 at the moment I think.
I pay £10 a month for my 50-user server and every so often put out a message that it's donation time again Grin

Or I could setup a free Teamspeak channel for you on the server I'm running for Plus.net. Depends if you definitely only want to use Ventrillo though.

Re: Ventrilo?

As far as I know, you need some sort of registration to run a Vent Server.  But you can run a Clan Teamspeak Server for free.
Best idea is to go onto the TS website, there are plenty of guides there on how to set it up and open the right ports on your firewall/router.
