Server Setup

Download the Server and Client Installation packages from the Ventrilo site. Select the ‘Windows i386-32bit’ under the “Server Program” section

http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php

Install the server software. The default location is C:\PROGRAM FILES\VENTSRV (the drive letter may be different depending on your local drive configuration)
This will create an entry in your Start > Programs menu called "VentSrv"

Configure the VENTRILO_SRV.INI file as needed. The only options that might need to be changed are the following:
(view the VENTRILO_SRV.HTM file for more detailed information)

Name=
Auth=
Adminpassword=
Password=
VoiceCodec=
VoiceFormat= (note: when setting to Speex, 3-20 is recommended)

(Note: It is recommended that the server be configured with a password to prevent all unwanted intrusions. If you plan on supporting Macintosh users then you must configure the server to use the Speex Codec (suggest using Speex 20). If any changes are made to this file the server must be restarted. )

Start the server by clicking on VENTRILO_SRV.EXE
This will start the server and display in a console window. If the screen displays “Ready:” at the bottom then it is ready for connections.

Note: You may have to configure any firewall/virus/spyware checkers to allow port 3784 (TCP and UDP) and 6100 UDP to pass thru. Consult the individual documentation.

Test the server install by connecting your local Ventrilo client to the server.
(If you’re connecting the client from a different PC then configure the client to use one of the ipaddresses from the 'ipconfig' command. If you’re running the client on the same PC as the server then use 127.0.0.1 or localhost as the servername)

Also be aware that some external users may have issues connecting due to configuration problems on their end. It is suggested that you read the following thread and also direct anyone having problems to read it also. http://ventrilo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23257
