Received an email from Typefrag:

At approximately 11:25 PM ET, our network in New York was attacked. The purpose of the attack was to flood our servers with large amounts of data in an effort to disrupt normal service levels. This is commonly referred to as a distributed denial of service or DDOS attack.

Customers hosted on,, and would have experienced extreme lag and packet loss in addition to being disconnected from Ventrilo several times. Our network administrators responded quickly to mitigate the attack and restore normal network operation by 11:55 PM ET.

In order to restore service to normal levels, our network administrators were required to update the IP address of the systems which were targeted by the attacks. If you are hosted on the host name and are unable to connect to your Ventrilo Server then please try connecting with the IP address

Seems to be working fine now.
