Advanced Config

To configure, open up /etc/mumble-server.ini via nano or vi (user preference):

nano /etc/mumble-server.ini

In order to avoid users from affecting your Mumble server negatively , you may use Mumble’s global-ban system.

The below configuration is set so that if someone attempts to connect to the server (unsuccessfully) 5 times within 60 seconds, they will be banned for 150 seconds.

autobanAttempts, autobanTimeframe and autobanTime
#autobanAttempts = 5
#autobanTimeframe = 60
#autobanTime = 150

In order for these rules to take place, you must remove the # in front of each line.

Serverpassword

You will be able to choose a password for your server here. Be sure to use a strong password such as: f;Q=uS6/#BK5t<(9

# Password to join server.
serverpassword=

Welcometext

This setting displays a message to the users every time they login to the server.

# Welcome message sent to clients when they connect.
welcometext="
Thank you for choosing Atlantic.net! We hope you enjoy your stay

Port

The default port used by mumble if port 64738.

port=64738

Users

With this setting, you can limit the number of users allowed on the server at one time.

users=150

Allowhtml

Set Allowhtml to true to allow HTML to be used in messages.

allowhtml=true

Press Ctrl+X to exit /etc/mumble-server.ini

Perfect, now your Mumble server is installed and configured!
