Q: How Do I Add Users/Admins To My Ventrilo Server?

Log in as an admin (You can find the password in the "Info" area of your control panel)

Right click in the server, and choose "Server Admin" -> "User Editor"

Enter a username and password for the user.

In the box next to "Profiles", select either "Generic User" or "Generic Admin" depending on what type of user you are adding, then click "Load Profile"

At this point, you can add or remove privileges by looking at the various tabs.  Please note that if you remove certain privileges you can prevent the user from talking, or seeing other users/channels.  Please be careful when removing anything that you are uncertain of what it does.

Now, click the "Add" button.  The user will now be able to log in with the password you set for them.

You will need to be logged in as an administrator in Ventrilo.

To Login as An Administrator in Ventrilo: 

You will need to log in as an administrator once inside Ventrilo (not as part of the connection properties).  To do so, connect using the regular server password that is needed by all users, as configured by you in the Ventrilo Server section of your Control Panel (unless the password is blank).  Then, right-click the Server Name node in the Ventrilo client window (it's the one with the computer icon next to it).  A menu will appear.  Hover over Server Admin, and then click Login.  Use the Server Admin Password as configured in the Control Panel, under Ventrilo Server.

After that is done, additional options underneath Server Admin, Channel Admin, and other areas on the right-click menu will become enabled.
