Toilet vent pipe

Has anyone out there dealt with this issue?  When I flush one toilet at home, the other toilet gurgles.  After a little googling, the culprit might be a clogged toilet vent.  Is this like a chimney that runs to the roof?  How do I unclog it myself?  Could the gurgling be caused by something else?  What happens if I just ignore the gurgling?  Thanks in advance.

Haven't had this particular problem myself but have done my fair share of plumbing work at home. Yes the vent sticks out of your roof. It will be a 1.5 or 2 inch pipe. The only way I know of to clear it out is to get up on your roof with a plumbing snake.
