Ventrilo (free version) commands
Hi there, I just had a simple question.
I've been running the free version as of late, and I was wondering what kind of commands does the DOS box accept? Such as ban, kick, mute, and so forth. Thank you very much.

The commands you are referring to are used thru the RCON console. for more information, read thru the ventrilo_srv.htm located in the server directory.
A copy of this program is available with each individual server platform.
This tool is used for submitting status information requests to servers. The following example shows how to issue a general status command "-c1" to a server running on the same machine.
ventrilo_status -c1 -t127.0.0.1The following example is similar to the one above but will request detailed status "-c2" from the same server.
ventrilo_status -c2 -t127.0.0.1The -c option specifies the type of request (command).
The -t option specifies the target address and can be an IP address or hostname. Unless otherwise specified the request would be issued to the default port of 3784. If the server you want to status is running on a different port number then you must append the port number to the target address and separated by a colon. The following example shows how:
ventrilo_status -c2 -t127.0.0.1:3794By default the status program will attempt to request the information 3 times with a 1 second delay between each request in order to guarantee delivery of the request and response. You can override the default number of attempts by placing the -a# option on the command line and replace the # sign with the number of attempts. However, 3 attempts should be more then sufficient.
All of the these options, and any not documented, and more examples can be obtained from the program it self by appending a -? to the command line.
The output from the program is pure ascii text. From the ventrilo.com download page there is a section that deals with additional utilities. One of these is a collection of PHP scripts that shows how to call the program and process the results coming back, in addition to basic examples for calling the other PHP scripts and displaying the results in a meaningful format.
