@ dawnah

changing that firewall setting didnt work and I have the correct exceptions so still pretty stuck. Did you have any luck with AVG?

Just wanted to add that I'm having this trouble as well.

i installed the free version of AVG (on win7) and didn't have any problems.

@ jdwise

are you also using t-mobile in the UK ?

I thought I'd try a safer method than uninstalling my AVG and installed a fresh copy of XP SP3 Home on a handy laptop hdd. Installed all motherboard, sound and gfx card drivers. Then installed the T-Mobile Dongle software. Connected up. Installed vent and entered clan server info. Still getting the Server is available then when try to connect just sticks on contacting server just like it just does anywaylol.

Phoned T-Mobile up, they block all VoIP INCLUDING ventrilo. Only way they will unblock it is if your on a high rate tariff. But I had a word with the guy I was on the phone with said for me to post on the T-Mobile website about ventrilo, and they will test it themselves to determine it's data usage as I was adamant it didn't use no where near as much as programs like skype since that incorporates video calling as well. So fingers crossed.

I just finally did a restore, its working properly now, I think it was a virus, not sure.

@ sn1p3r

thanks for that update. i suspected as much after you did the laptop test and got the same result.
