    I'm wondering if anyone here has ever downloaded and setup the Ventrilo Server Program for Mac.

    Instructions for installing it are here: http://www.ventrilo.com/setup.php#Server_Installing

    But they are very very confusing.

    Basically, I'm just looking for some help. :p

    Setting it up

    First download the server.

    you should get a folder in your home folder called ventrilo and subfolders and stuff in that

    make sure u open port 3784 on your router..etc.

    in terminal type cd ventrilo (press enter)

    then press cd ventsrv (press enter)

    then type ./ventrilo_srv

    this will start the server with the settings set in the configuration.ini file. to change them just open that file with your text editor. it is in the ventsrv folder in the ventrilo folder.

    reply if u need more help.

    Help Needed with Setting up a Ventrilo Server!!

    Make sure you are using the outside ip (the one assigned by the ISP).
    Depending on your router the port forwarding should look something like this:
    Application:ventrilo
    Port Start:3784
    Port End:3784
    Protocol:TCP
    IP Address:192.168.1.139 (in your case)

    You then need to add the following to the ventrilo.ini file
    Port:3784 (it should already be there since you are using the default port)
    intf=192.168.1.139

    When someone tries to connect they will need to put your outside ip # into the server setup along with the port # and password (if used).
    So if your outside ip # is 202.158.468.69 then that is the # needed to connect.

    The command line interface that allows you to run non gui type programs. Generally used to execute unix commands.

    You can find it in Applications->Utilities

    Either LyleKite is a troll or is really a PC user.

    Either way, if you're on a PC you can't access Apple's Terminal.app.

    If you're a PC user trying to run a Ventrilo Server, please consult another forum.
