It's actually a lot easier to set up your own ventrilo server for PUGs than most people think.The only tricky part is setting up port forwarding in your router (if you use a router) and there's lots of information on the web about setting up port forwarding for other applications (mainly file sharing apps).Once you have that set up, you just use a site like http://whatsmyip.org/ to find out your IP address so you can give it out to people you want to PUG with.If you want to get fancy, you can use a dynamic DNS service to give a real domain name to your computer so people don't have to use the IP...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_DNSThe free ventrilo server is limited to 8 users so it will work fine for a 5-man PUG.
