where do I add my ip adress?


Recommended Posts

This has been driving me mad for the last few hours. I cant see here to add my ip adress to this so other people can access my server.


# Path to database. If blank, will search for

# murmur.sqlite in default locations or create it if not found.


# If you wish to use something other than SQLite, you'll need to set the name

# Sticking with SQLite is strongly recommended, as it's the most well tested

# Murmur defaults to not using D-Bus. If you wish to use dbus, which is one of the

# RPC methods available in murmur, please specify so here.



# Alternate service name. Only use if you are running distinct

# murmurd processes connected to the same D-Bus daemon.


# If you want to use ZeroC Ice to communicate with Murmur, you need

# to specify the endpoint to use. Since there is no authentication

# with ICE, you should only use it if you trust all the users who have

# shell access to your machine.

# Please see the ICE documentation on how to specify endpoints.

ice="tcp -h -p 6502"

# Ice primarily uses local sockets. This means anyone who has a

# user account on your machine can connect to the Ice services.

# You can set a plaintext "secret" on the Ice conntection, and

# any script attempting to access must then have this secret.


# How many login attempts do we tolerate from one IP

# inside a given timeframe before we ban the connection?

# Note that this is global (shared between all virtual servers), and that

# it counts both successfull and unsuccessfull connection attempts.

# Set either Attempts or Timeframe to 0 to disable.

#autobanAttempts = 10

#autobanTimeframe = 120

#autobanTime = 300

# Murmur default to logging to murmur.log. If you leave this blank,

# murmur will log to the console (linux) or through message boxes (win32).


# If set, murmur will write its process ID to this file.


# The below will be used as defaults for new configured servers.

# If you're just running one server (the default), it's easier to

# configure it here than through D-Bus or Ice.

What am I doing wrong?

Quite a lot :D First time you see a configuration file I guess?

The # in front of a line means it will be ignore when reading the configuration (it's for comments and to deactivate parts you don't actually want to be interpreted).

Also: Are you even sure you want to bind to a specific IP address, because most people don't want to. If you leave the host field blank the server will bind to all IPs the server controls.

That entirely depends on your system, system configuration and hardware.

What I would do is just try it like that.

If Ventrilo worked mumble probably does as well. (if you didn't do any setup for Ventrilo neither)


you’ll probably have to forward the port in your routers firewall,

or open the port on your local firewall / allow the app.

This is the ventrilo config I was using and never had a problem with it.



Name=Server 1

Phonetic=Server 1






















What I need the a basic config for mumble so I can do the same. I just need to know what changes to make to the mumble config file to get it working. I know how to do port forwarding on my computer. I can pop along to no ip and get dnns if I need them. Can some kind person just give me the very basic's pls?

So you’re using port 6881, and the other person is connecting to the correct IP address and port 6881?

doa is you?

No incoming connection is logged, so it’s a network problem.

Check that the port is open to the network for connections.
