So I never did get vent to work, and in the end that is ok. Work out better to go with Mumble.
Never figured out how to set up my own Murmur server to host, and that worked out for the best to I guess.
I ended up just buying a Mumble server. I like it, works with no issue with FFXIV. However it isn't vent, something I kind of knew how to use.
I don't want to spam Wint's journal, so hopefully more then just one other uses mumble...or can help me because my googlechu is weak and fails me much.
I went with mumble in the end because both Apple Store and the Android Market offer a free App to connect to a server when one is within Wifi. Android users can get a free Vent app, but I never was able to find a free app on the Apple Store (Friend and some of his friends who are playing, play on ps3 and don't have a keyboard yet. This also for communication w/o using the pop up click and hit keyboard :D). Thus why Mumble was picked in the end.
I never know, without looking at the other screen, if I'm alone or not in the server. In vent there was a chime for when someone joined and when someone disconnected. I've jumped out of my seat here the last few days when someone connects and says Hi, or anything...because I'm not ready for there to be someone talking lol
So this brings me to the question at hand: Is there an option...or an add-on/plugin...that will allow to send off a chime when someone logs in/out?
