I have a friend over for a few days, and we're playing some games via LAN. Mostly Titan Quest, Unreal Tournament 3, Gears of War and Quake Wars.
Anyway, we're in different rooms, and typing messages really just isn't good enough for fast paced games, or you just get left behind while you type in Titan Quest.
I've been looking around for a program to use so we can use our headsets to communicate with eachother. I came across Ventrilo and I guess it all seemed fairly simple. That is until i realized I needed to host the server myself, so i downloaded the Server thing, and ran it. I still couldn't connect to my own server using the Ventrilo client when I was LANed.
So I got back on the internet and checked out some 'guides' which helped a tiny bit, I managed to connect to my own server while I was online, No luck doing it again when I was connected to his PC.
So yeah, i'm basically seeing if anyone could give me a simple step-by-step guide to how to set up Ventrilo through LAN. The Router i'm going through is a D-Link DI-614+ I think...
