Yea but I have my own server with my own resources. Ventrilo doesn't seem to want any business.

But you know what hostile policies like this do? Upon searching for an explanation to the eight-user limit, these were the search results that came up. Crack upon crack upon crack upon crack of torrented software and illicit downloads for people who want to run their own server without these absurd restrictions. Now I'm not going to put cracked software on my machine to begin with, even though I hadn't been considering it at all (again, I wanted to pay for the pro license and I was happy to do so), but the fact of the matter is if you are this unwilling to provide for customers who want your product, this is the sort of result you get. People will just steal it. You see it in video games, it's a constant response to DRM, this is just reality. Create enough difficulty for your customer and they won't bother trying to be your customer, whether they go to a competitor or flip you off and take your product.
In any event after reading the comment in that I came across this:http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Main_Page
Even better yet in the documentation:
Using a PhpBB3 as authentication source
There is an extended example of how to use the authenticator called scripts/dbusauth.pl. You'll need to configure where your phpBB3 database resides, but once that is done you'll simply have to run the script after starting murmur to allow authentication to be done through the phpBB3 database.
Any group associations the user has on phpBB3 is copied to a temporary group on a root channel (and by default inherited to all subchannels). Please note that this is a temporary group membership and as such will not show up in the Edit ACL dialogs.
Anybody ever use mumble? I think what is important is that it has chat, voice is really nice bonus though.
