2. Where is says "Interval", select "500-1000"
3. Where is says "Times", select "1-2"

Repeat the above steps for all of the filters.

2. Type "Status" and hit enter. That will display all the users along with their IP so you can manually add them to your ban list.

The above settings are very strict and will remove many functions for guest users. However, they will also help to keep your Ventrilo spam free.
