are you sure the spelling is correct?

does the server return a status here - http://ventrilo.com/status.php

open a terminal session and enter the following:

nslookup

example:

nslookup ventrilo5.fragnet.com

you should get a response back with the ipaddress for that name

In case it was overlooked, you must also supply the port number.
