Guidence in setting up a Murmur server and Mumble clients on a LAN
Posted on 2010-11-14
As a father of an eight-year-old, I got tired to hear my son and his mates shouting to each other when playing some game over our LAN, sitting in different rooms with a PC each. So I asked around and people were telling me that I should get TeamSpek, or I would be better of with Ventrilo, or I should definitely go for Mumble. So I did! I dowloaded the package and clicked that I wanted to install the client, the server and Bonjour as I thought I understood the information correctly as this was going to be a small voice over IP-project for our inhouse LAN, which meant I would have the server (Murmur) and the client (Mumble) on one PC, and then just the client on all the others (four PC:s in total)... The Bonjour service would help me find Murmur on our LAN which meant that I did not had to get into the router and set fixed IP-addresses for the PC:s, right???
Now it seems that I have installed the client. And I can see Murmur running in the systems tray. But no I don't know what to do next!
I have tried to understand the "Murmurguide", where I think I should go for the next step, and I have also managed to find the Murmur.ini file which I understand is crucial, only I feel a bit intimidated this "crude" kind of computing.
So I guess it is from here that I would be very happy if someone gently could guide me on what steps to take in order to set up my first voice chat service for my son and his friends and to run exclusively on our LAN! Thanks in advance!
