How to Recover a Ventrilo Password


Ventrilo is software that allows people to talk over the Internet. Server software is setup on a host machine, and the people who use the server install client software. The application is completely free for server and client software. The administrator password is located in the ventrilo_srv.ini file. Recovering the password means finding this file and reading the text. It can also be changed in this file if the administrator needs to reset it.

  • Click the Windows "Start" button and select the "VentSrv" icon. Within this menu, select "Edit INI File." This opens the INI file where the password is entered.

  • Scroll down to the section of the file that is labeled "AdminPassword." This line sets or recovers the Ventrilo password. Enter a new password and save the file.

  • Reboot the computer. If you change the password, the service needs to be restarted. Reboot the computer and the new password changes take effect.
