Ventrilo is Voice over IP (VoIP) client and server software available for free or paid download. "Vent" is highly configurable and runs on a per user, per channel, per server or global configuration level. Vent uses suprisingly little system and network resources, less than 1% cpu/memory during chat. Sound quality is excellent and global latency on my system is less than 0.5 of a second. Setting up a Vent server was quite painless.
1. Create a directory for vent. I used /etc/ventrilo. In
the /etc directory issue the mkdir
ventrilo command and cd /etc/ventrilo
Within the ventrilo_srv.ini file you can rename the server, set passwords, etc. View the ventrilo_srv.htm file for more information. By default, Vent will open in a terminal window when started. This window shows status and users currently logged in. I run my server in daemon mode /etc/ventrilo/ventsrv/ventrilo_srv -d as the server would shut down when the terminal window is closed. I check the log files for any access or error information. To run the server at startup add the line /etc/ventrilo/ventsrv/ventrilo_srv -d at the bottom of the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.
Clients wishing to connect to the server must know the IP address. You can check your current IP here http://www.ventrilo.com/myip.php . I created a Dyndns account to use with my update client so they would only have to enter <username>.homedns.org each time they wanted to log in instead of having to update IP addresses each day. For more information or FAQ's visit the Ventrilo and Dyndns websites.
