There is a patch to add to the game (4.08) have you got that? you will need to add it, also if you are trying to play on UBIcom I would not bother, I would download the free software for Hyperlobby and play on there ( again free ) as there are a lot more people on there and it does not have any timeout problems. but you will need the patch.

hyperlobby see


patch see

see what iam try to do is join bye a ip this why i am geting join time out my friend has v 4.07m

ok in that case one of you has a firewall up and it is preventing it........... try you hosting instead of him, if that does not work then try a quickie with the firewalls off.......... if that works then you will need to adjust the settings to allow the game to pass through it.......remember XP also has a firewall built in too.

one other possibility might be the game is on a different drive etc from the default location, but i would say the firewall is it.

If your friend is trying to host behind a router and has never hosted before the router would block port 21000 UDP which makes you time-out.
If this is the case have him go to
PortForward (http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm)
and follow the directions for IL-2 for his router.

You also have to be running the same version of the game - 4.07m in the case of your friend or you can't join his server.

And the firewall has to allow IL-2 to talk to the net as Tony said.

2 of my friend can but i cant but they got the same v4.07m i do

Ok, your friends can host and join but you can't.
Have you checked your firewall?
Control Panel
Windows Firewall
Exceptions Tab
and check if IL-2 shows up as one of the exceptions
if not then Add Program and add it

Also you have to know the host's IP address

Turn off all your firewalls first and try again. If he is running Win2000 there can be a problem with that. Double check the i.p. you are entering, try with and without the leading zeros, also try it with and without :21000 listed after the i.p.

Some Anti-Virus scanners can also block communication - you might want to turn them off for a test-run too.
Try if you can join a 4.07m game at hyperlobby or UBI - that way at least you know you can connect.
Let your friend check his IP and send it to you by e-mail, then you can cut and paste it into IL-2 so you can't make a typo.
Ctrl+Ins copies selection to the clipboard, Shift-Ins will paste from the clipboard to the cursor.
to get the IP:
start - run - type cmd
in the dos window type ipconfig <enter>
the ip will be shown and can be selected and copied into an email.

4.07s are VERY hard to find.
I just thought of something, he should be running as a dogfight game, or if a coop the host, after aircraft selection, must wait until everyone is connected before he hits fly.
