Ventrilo 2 Scanning Issues
GameTracker no longer officially supports Ventrilo 2. If you run into issues with Ventrilo 2, please upgrade your server to the most recent version and try again.

Player names show up as XXXXXXX
User names will appear as XXXXXXX when the settings indicate that player names should not be reported.

This issue occurs for all of the users on my server
Right click the window -> Open the Server Admin menu and click Server Properties. Ensure that "User names" is checked under remote statusing returns.

This issue occurs for only a select number of users
When not connected to a server, have the affected user(s) click the "->" button next to the server selection drop down. They should select the affected server. The option "Show login name in remote status requests" should be checked if it is not checked.

Prevent your Ventrilo Server From Tracking
For one reason or another, there are users who are concerned about the visibility of their Ventrilo channels. Note: Visitors of the GameTracker website cannot listen in on your conversations unless they actually connect to the server.

If you are concerned about random users finding your server and joining, you should have a password on your server. Note: There is no way for GameTracker to determine your server password, so this should solve your concerns.

However, Ventrilo provides a little bit more of functionality than most game servers and voice programs.
1. Open up Server Admin -> Server Properties...
2. Look for the area marked Remote statusing returns.
3. Uncheck what you are concerned about.

I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.
