Mumble-Server!
« on: 12 May 2013, 06:44 »

As I had already mentioned in the WCDT, I have always had the intention of running a Mumble (Open Source Teamspeak-like (but better) VoIP system) server on my home server. It would be for the members of these forums, won't be too reliable as there will be a disconnect every 24 hours, but it should work.

I've now set up a server, but am not sure I've set the permissions correctly. So I'd like to know if anyone here wants to "beta-test"! Forum moderators would get additional rights on this server as well.

so, as I seem to have sparked a little more interest in this in the "User facts" thread, I think it would be good to move the discussions about the server to this thread.

By the way Welu: is there a specific reason you left again without even saying hello?  :cry:

Edit: Woohoo! I just managed to talk to Welu! But apparently I have to work on the permissions.

Until I fixed it you need to move to another Channel to be able to talk.

Sorry, the first time I went in I was just checking it out and my microphone wouldn't configure so I had to restart. Also I'm incredibly awkward as you may have heard. Expect me to pop in and out without saying anything sometimes.

I might try this soon. But my mic doesn't seem to be all that good? So I dunno how it will go.

Welu: Nah, I think most of us feel awkward in such a situation.

It was nice hearing you in person! Same goes for Loki, with whom I just talked while he was doing his homework.

The default channel problem should be fixed now, I had to fumble around with the server's sqlite database a bit, so I don't know if it works. If anybody who has not joined the server before could report here, whether he lands in the general or the Chatter channel it would be great!

I'm off to bed now, but I'll now frequent the server a bit more often, in the hope of more people showing up.

Also I'll give forum members more permission, and even more to Mods/Admins when I'm online. In order for me to do that you have to "register" your username on the server. You can do that by right clicking on your name and clicking "register".

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.

Neko: Don't worry, most of us don't have good microphones (I think mine should be at least acceptable) I think. If you're worried of producing too much noise, go to the settings and switch to "push-to-talk". You then can define a "push-to-talk"-button in the "Hotkeys" section, and from then on you will only transmit sound when you're keeping that key pushed walkie-talkie style.

Let me see if I can remember.

First step:
* Download the client.
* Run the installer
* Start Mumble
* Click yourself through the dialogue to configure your audio settings
* Select the menu Server->Connect
* Don't choose one from the list. Instead, "Add server" with the details:
Name: [This is the name shows up in your local server list.]
Server: mumble halfur de (with periods)
Port: 64738
Username: [username]
* move to the CHATTER room if necessary

So, short explanation typed from bed (even though you, Masterpiece seem to have figured it out already)

You download Mumble from http://mumble.sf.net and install it. Run it. Then a welcoming assistant will appear. You will be asked to set up a certificate (that is what the server will use to identify you), just click next to do so. Yeu will also be asked to configure your audio. Basically, select the right source, if you want to use voice activation adjust the two toggle volumes (at which level to start sending your voice, and at which to stop again), if you want to use push-to-talk (walkie talkie mode) you have to set a push to talk key (the button you have to keep pressed while talking). (I would advise people without headsets to use PTT, as voice activation can react badly on notebook microphones, with the result that everybody can hear you typing, a buzzing, and harddrive access sounds)

Then you're all set to join the server.
As Label you can choose whatever you like. The address is mumble.halfur.de, the port is the default one. Type in a username and connect.

Your name will appear in a list on the right side. There you can see three channels (Chatter, Comic and Relate for now), which you can join by doubleclicking on them (only one at a time). When you speak everybody in the channel will hear. While you're sending the lips icon next to your name will become red, the same applies to other people talking, so you can see whose voice you're just hearing.

Please right click on your name and click "register". That will connect your username to your certificate. Then only your program can use this username. Only drawback: if you want to log in from a different computer you need to take your certificate with you (you can export and import certificates with the "certificate manager" in the configuration menu.).

If I'm awake, sure.  I had to take the roomate to the hospital in the middle of the night for some bad nausea, and I'm still waiting for him to call me to pick him back up.  I'm in CST.
