216.93.231.15, Port 1337

I plan to leave my server on all night & day (& then maybe I'll set the BIOS to turn the computer on at a specified time daily after that, & set Windows to turn off, & so on...), so PLEASE log on to my server, for I am bored! (Please?)

(Try to use the same handles you have here, to lessen confusion)

Please note that there might be some people from the Benheck forums on my server too.

My server will be down until Friday, but I must ask: Did anyone even ATTEMPT to connect to my server last weekend? Either no one attempted to connect, or I typed something in wrong when opening port 3784 on my routers firewall...

I would have tried but I'm on a dial up. Does it work that way? If so I'll give it a shot come Friday.

It takes very little bandwidth. Dial-up would be fine.

Okay, I'll give it a shot, then. Erm, you wouldn't happen to remember the command for DOS to send a ping to a certain address, would you? Something like:

ping 216.93.231.15 3784

or soemthing like it, right??

Ping [ip] is correct, but I'm not completely sure about the port #, but that's the syntax in telnet, so it might be...

Is it up yet?
I tried pinging you, but got no answer.
BTW, what software do we use to connect?

You use Ventrilo. (http://www.ventrilo.com/)

My server should be up Friday ~6PM. I CAN ask my father to turn on my computer later today, but I can't guarantee it will connect properly. More to come later today...

You can text within Ventrilo. (The client is just under 2MB, in case you're on dial-up)

By the way, I've decided that my server will annually run during the weekends. More specifically, Fri 6:00-ish PM - Sun 8:00-ish PM.

Sadly, no one has logged on yet...

Honest question. Why would somebody want to use your server? What does it do? If it is only on a part time basis, is it that useful?

A. So the VC forum members can chat in real time. B. see A... C. Yes, most of us would only use it on the weekends, and it saves electricity.

I was wondering the same thing, considering there's about a squillion public TeamSpeak servers available 24/7.
(Yes, I've tried Ventrilo but everyone I know is on TS, or Skype, or EchoLink)

atari, what are the credentials to log in?
Is it public, or private?
It wont let me log in with just a IP addy and port number.

same here. I tried to log in but 'could not connect to server.' I'm still looking but what am I doing wrong? Is there a username and password that I can use?

My server got turned off last night; I'm turning it back on right now. There is no password; just leave it blank.

I haven't used Skype, & TeamSpeak is more of an MMORPG program. (...& even so, my brother's WoW Guild uses Vent)

Still cannot connect.
Did you open the port on your router?

I know I TRIED to; I'll take a screenshot in an hour. (I need to break my fast right now)

Is this correct?

Not sure if this is the same "vent" but they say NOT to use 3784 on this web pagehttp://www.ventriloservers.biz/ventrilo-instructions.html

OK, now not even I can connect to my server! Hopefully I can get it up tomorrow, but now all I want to do is play some Sonic Adventure DX...
