Default Server Connection Issue - Did not logon before timeout

I have no problems connecting to the server using localhost.

External access using no-ip.com is still an issue however.

I'm not sure why I'm receiving the following error:

http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r...vent/error.jpg

The server shows the connection has been made but after the default timeout time which is 5 seconds the server throws the "Did not logon before timeout" error.

I'm never prompted for a login and I have turned password authentication off through the INI file. "Auth=0"

The following image shows the server is reachable using ventrilo.com/status.php therefore I've ruled out the port forwarding issue.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

if you're trying to connect from your internal lan then you need to configure the client to use one of the ipaddresses listed on the screen. trying to connect internally using your external address usually doesn't work as most routers won't re-route back into the LAN. Since the status tool works then outside users should be able to connect.

Thanks for your response.

You were indeed correct. The router wouldn't let me re-route back.

I gave it a try from an external machine and it worked right away.

My old linksys router would allow me to hit the server from inside using the external ip however its replacement does not.

Thanks again.

Hello, I'm sorry for necroposting but I have the same trouble and don't see any reason to create new thread.

How can i configure my client to connect like an external machine? I tried to input my global ip adress, my local ip adress and even 127.0.0.1 but result was always the same

@lastt

where is the vent server located?

here's a little more detail:

For PC’s connecting on the same LAN as the server:
If you’re connecting the client from a different PC than the server then configure the client to use one of the internal ipaddresses of the server for the servername.

If you’re running the client on the same PC as the server then use 127.0.0.1 or “localhost” as the servername.

Most home routers will not loopback a connection if you specify your external ipaddress or hostname in the Ventrilo Client / Server setup. In most cases this configuration has caused unexpected problems.

Serv located on my PC, my PC is in LAN, nobody has trouble with connection - not people from the same LAN neither does people who not in that LAN.
I can add that this problem arise from time to time, after reboot or some number of reboots I can connect my server. And sometimes when connection is ok all the system starting lag so much, I even can't turn off num lock, only emergency reboot helps. I tried to use "localhost" but there was no result, everybody except me can connect.

P.S. my friend from other LAN has the same problem

try these too:

In Windows Network Properties, disable all un-used network card ports (some cards include both wired and wireless ports)
Windows Control-Panel / network and sharing / manage network connection / right-click on the device(s) that aren't used and select 'disable'

In Windows Network Properties, try disabling QoS:
Windows Control-Panel / network and sharing / view status (link on right side) / properties / uncheck "QoS Packet Scheduler"

Temporarily disable all firewall/virus applications to test

All unused devices were already disabled. I deleted QoS, after that I could connect my server, thanks a lot.

Problem isn't gone I usually solve it by reboot, that mean I can connect my server if only computer doesn't work for too long(how long I don't know). If I disable firewall/anivirus nothing changes. So maybe if I could create server on another port this problem will be solved? But I don't know how to use another port when I'm going too create a serv. I just don't see another solution.

check your system for other firewall/virus apps that are not in use and un-install them.
