Cant run server
Im using 8.1. When i click on ventrilo server I get a message saying: The item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed. You may not have the appropriate permissions.

Prog-Rocker 12-23-2014 05:00 PM

try starting it by rt-cliking on the icon then select 'run as admin'

clomba 12-23-2014 05:08 PM

Same error when run as admin

Prog-Rocker 12-23-2014 05:27 PM

that message is coming from windows. are you logged into windows as an admin?

clomba 12-23-2014 05:52 PM

As far as i know im logged in as admin. How would i check?

clomba 12-23-2014 05:53 PM

Just checked and i am logged in as admin.

Prog-Rocker 12-23-2014 06:28 PM

check the permissions.

rt-clik on the icon > properties > security

also try temp disabling all firewall/virus apps

clomba 12-23-2014 06:29 PM

Have already done all that with no luck.

clomba 12-23-2014 06:51 PM

Ok got the server to run. Now i get this: MSG contacting server. If i run the server from another computer it works fine and i can connect, just cant connect with the computer i just got the sever working with. Both cpu's are plugged into the same modem.

Prog-Rocker 12-23-2014 07:07 PM

set the client to use either or localhost as the servername

clomba 12-23-2014 08:30 PM

Ok got it to work. Now anybody I give the info to can't get in. It says MSG contacting server. They can trouble shoot that on there end. Thanks for the help.

did you configure your router as described here:


clomba 12-23-2014 09:20 PM

Yes I port forwarded already.

Prog-Rocker 12-23-2014 10:00 PM

can the status page see your server?


clomba 12-23-2014 10:05 PM

yes status page can see it.

clomba 12-23-2014 10:09 PM

It can only see it when i turn off firewall.

clomba 12-23-2014 10:10 PM

I have vent allowed through firewall.

Prog-Rocker 12-23-2014 11:11 PM

if the status page can see it and the other pc can connect then it should allow outside users to connect. send me a PM with your WAN address and I'll try to connect
