[VENT] We Now Offer Help Via Ventrilo

We now have a ventrilo server...
If you would like assistance via it...
Please PM and Admin or SUmod...
Or anyone u would like help from...
And use the server details below...

NOTE: If nobody is on atm... Please try our IRC..
or PM sumone and arrange a time to be on ventrillo..


PORT: 3888



1. Download a copy of the Windows i386 - 32bit Client from...

Ventrilo is composed of two different components:[INDENT] The first is the client program. This is what most people will download and use and is the primary user interface.
The second is the server program. This is what all clients must connect to in order to communicate with other people.
[/INDENT]When downloading either program it is always best to get the latest version of the component you want. Direct links to specific files are not possible for this reason. If you are posting a link to Ventrilo then please direct it to the main domain so that people can get a quick introduction to what the Ventrilo system is.
Ventrilo is supported on different platforms as well. When downloading either the client or server it is important that you download the appropriate platform version. For example, Microsoft Windows is the currently supported platform for the client programs. However, in the future the client program might be available for the Apple Macintosh or Linux Operating Systems. Downloading the appropriate platform program also applies to the server component which is currently supported on platforms other then Microsoft Windows.

2. Install the Client to your computer...
If for any reason the installer program gives you an error like (I/O error) or (CRC error) then this means that the installer program was corrupted during the download process. This is usually caused by using old web browsers when downloading the file or your browser is accessing the web through a proxy server. Unfortunately it's hard to say exactly which is the real culprit. Before downloading the file again you should flush your browsers cache to assure that a fresh copy is pulled down from the Ventrilo web site, and consider accessing the web without using a proxy.
Once the installation program is finished it will have accomplished several things:[INDENT] 1) All files will be installed into the specified location.
2) A folder called "Ventrilo" will be created in your Start / Programs menu.
3) Registry entries for "ventrilo://" web links have been created.
[/INDENT]3. After the client program has been installed you can use these quick step-by-step instructions for getting the program configured and connected into a server. Before you begin you need to know several things before you can connect to a server.[INDENT] 1) The server's hostname or IP address. The person running the server should have this information.
2) The server's port number. Ventrilo server's and client's default to port number 3784 but if the server admin has changed the port number then you will need to tell the Ventrilo client to use the same port number when connecting to the server.
3) The server's case sensitive password (if a password is required).
[/INDENT]Once you have these three pieces of information you can begin setting up the Ventrilo client. If you need more detailed help regarding any portion of Ventrilo you should click on the "Help" buttons for details regarding the window you are currently looking at.
If you already have the program installed and are having problems with it you should read the F.A.Q.'s page of this web site for possible problems and suggested solutions. When all else fails then go the support forum and ask for any possible solutions.
Now, lets do a quick setup.[INDENT] 1) Start the ventrilo program. Click on the Start button, click on Programs and then click on Ventrilo. This will display another menu option called Ventrilo that will start the actual program.
2) Click on the "->" button that is next to the first pulldown window called "User Name". This will open a new window where you can create a logon name to be used when connecting to a server.
3) Click the "New" button. This will open a small window where you can enter your logon name. The name you enter is entirely up to you. It can be your real name or a nick name.
4) Click the "OK" button. You can come back to this window and click on the help button later on if you want more detailed information about what the other options mean and how to use them.
5) Now that we are back to the main window click on the "->" button that is next to the pulldown window called "Server". This will open a new window where you can enter the details about the server you would like to connect to.
6) Click the "New" button. This will open a small window where you can enter a name that will describe the new server definition. The name can be anything you want it to be like: "My server" or "Joe's server". When entering a server name you don't need the quotes around it. These server names will show up in the main Ventrilo window.
7) Click "OK".
8) Click on the "Hostname or IP" input box and enter the server hostname or IP address given to you by the person hosting the server.
9) Click on the "Port number" input box and enter the servers port number. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but you can change this to what ever the server needs it to be.
10) Click on the "Password" input box and enter the servers password as defined by the server administrator.
11) Click "OK" to return to the Ventrilo main window.
12) Click "Connect" to establish a connection between you and the server you just defined.
13) You should also click on the Setup button and configure all of the different options that control Ventrilo. This is very important when it comes to controlling the microphone or input source. Once in the Setup dialog click on the "Help" button. Be sure to read what all of the options are and what they mean. This is very important for the Voice page.
[/INDENT]That's all there is to it. You can always add more server definitions and create new logon names at any time.

4. Thing you should know...
Each user name you create controls all of the other details in the program. Think of each user name as a profile and each profile can have it's own details. What this means is that each user name will have it's own list of servers, it's own list of bindings and all information in the Setup button will be unique to each user.

Starting with Version 2.0 of the client duplicate user name's can be created. This will allow you to keep your logon name but have a slightly different profile for each one. You can give each name a description that will show up in the "User Name" pulldown window so that you can distinguish between the different profiles.

5. Client Troubleshooting...
These are some of the most common problems that users experience when first trying to use the client. For more detailed info please click on the F.A.Q.'s page or go to the support forum.

Q: After pressing Connect the program waits for about 15 to 30 seconds with an hour glass mouse cursor and then displays an error "Unable to connect".
A: This can be several things. Either your internet connection is down, the server you are trying to connect to is off line, you're firewall/router is preventing the outgoing connection or you entered the incorrect hostname/ip address and associated port number when you defined the server.

Q: After connecting to the server it immediately pops up a message saying that the server could not "Authenticate" me. A: This means that the server is password protected and the password you defined for the current server is not valid or you did not enter a password at all. Remember, passwords are case sensitive.
