You must first ask for the IP (and the game must be running too) - to HOST a game yourself and have others join you need to give them your IP.
You will end up with something like this:
213.51.246.219
add :21000 for the port there
so 213.51.246.219:21000
Find your IP setting by Start-Run-cmd
a dos window appears
type ipconfig
read your IP
type EXIT
now you are back in windows.

or select play it on ubi or what ever it says this will take you to the forum with games on, the ip one just cuts out the middle man ie ubicom and makes em faster, if you join em some post the ip then u can enter that......... if you have installed there is normally a direct link on your main window to it unless you junked it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I wouldn't mess with IP games, they are more trouble than it is worth. I suggest using a free gaming service. There are many to choose from but the best one for IL2/FB/AEP is Hyperlobby (HL for short). Go to http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/ for info and to download the program. Another free game service is ubi.com but it sucks in my opinion and has 1/4th at many players as HL does. It is also worth noting that these programs have no affect on lag. They stop sending and recieving data once a connection is established between the players. They do use up a small amount of memory but it isn't much.
