Default Server Connect Issue MacBook Pro


First post so sorry if I am doing anything incorrectly. I have setup my vent server, tested at this location "" which provides my server info.

I can connect to my server using my physical IP but when I try to use an external ip it just sits there saying "MSG: Connecting to server" and nothing happens. I have also tried to connect to other test ventrilo servers which works fine.

Any help is much appreciated.

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

use the following config when connecting internally:

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. The LAN ipaddress is typically set to 192.168.x.x

If you’re running the client on the same PC as the server then configure the client to use or “localhost” as the Hostname (ipaddress).
