How to Export Vent Settings
Learning how to export Ventrilo settings is actually quite easy and only takes a few minutes. You will of course need to have Vent installed on both the main computer you are using, plus that of the one you plan on transferring the settings to. Vent is a free to use program and has a very quick installation time, so you don't have to wait long.
To export your current settings, open Ventrilo. In the area where the channels are listed, right click within a white space area. A menu listing will appear; the first selection is 'VIEW', using the mouse to hover over the option, a new menu will appear. Select the first selection of 'WORKING DIRECTORY'. This will automatically open up the Ventrilo folder that is installed on your hard drive. In this folder, you will be looking for a text file that is labeled 'ventrilo2'. If your computer's folders are configured to show the type of file, you will see that this is a configuration settings file. These types of files are usually called 'ini' files or installation files.
Select this file and right click it. Again, you will get a menu and you will need to find and select the option to 'copy'. You can also use keyboard shortcuts by selecting the file and pressing the control key (CTRL) and the C key together. Now, you are going to paste this file in a different location - that is to say the location of the secondary computer. The best way to do this is to paste the copied ventrilo2.ini file to a thumb drive and then use the thumb drive to bring over to the second computer.
To restore this file, take the same steps in exporting it and then just paste the file in the Ventrilo folder. You will most likely get a warning that you will be replacing or overwriting the current ventrilo2.ini file. If this is alright with you, click OK that you acknowledge the message and continue to paste the file.
