Hi guys, Just saying thanks for bearcat and skycat for the newbies guide and vulgar for the CEM guide and who ever else I haven't named.
I'm just wondering why I can't connect to servers in hyperlobby. Every time I connect to a server it boots up and after a few minutes teying to connect it says server timed out. I tried all the populated servers AAA Skies of Valour etc. But I can never seem to connect to anything!

Hope you guys can help and I'm really loving the game and I want a taste of Online skies (Even though I'm gonna get my *** whooped)
Thanks bailout99

do you have a firewall ?

You only need a few outgoing ports in a firewall to be open. I don't know their numbers off the top of my head though.

What version of IL2 are you using Bailout? You must use the same version as the server, which, on hyperlobby, is either 4.08m or 4.09b1m.

You must also use a non-modded installation for servers which demand it.

How is your internet connection? If it's too slow (or someone is downloading) you might not be able to connect either.

Welcome to the community bailout99. I would guess that it is indeed the version of the game that you are using. Check the host by clicking on it and usually they state the version.

Good luck.

Thanks guys for the responses. I do have a fire wall but IL-2 is exempted from being blocked so thats not a problem. My version is 4.08m (thanks to the nuggets guide) and thats still timed out.
BTW I live in Australia so could that be a problem?
I did a speed test from www.speedtest.net (http://www.speedtest.net) and my download speed is 1.33mb/s my upload speed is 0.22mb/s and my ping is 31ms. Is that alright to play? I play other games online which work fine.

Thanks for your replies bailout99

Being in Australia is most definitely not a problem. There are quite a few aussies in the community including myself. A few of the servers in Hyperlobby are based in Australia too.

I suggest you try unblocking all outgoing ports, and leaving the incoming ones blocked, if you have control of it. Otherwise try disabling the firewall, see if it works, and then you'll know whether its a port blocking problem or not.

Are you on vista or XP?

I'm in Melbourne BTW, and have the same up/down rates as you. I don't have too many problems online.

Check your PMs!

Simple quick test, switch off your software firewall and see if you can connect.

10 minutes without a firewall wont hurt your PC.

It will tell us if its in fact the firewall or not...

Join an aussie squadron, there are quite a few. They will help you out heaps and it also immediately give you team mates to fly with online..

I particularly recommend my old squadron (WTE) though most aussie squadrons are good blokes --

I was thinking could the internet settings in the game be the problem? On the menu screen when you click on hardware and network it comes up with:
Modem (9.6k)
Modem (14.4k)
Modem (28.8k)

Cable,X DSL
LAN

If i'm on the wrong setting could that stop me from playing?

Make sure your trying to connect to a 408m game, and not a 408mods game. Ask in HL for someone to help with this part.

Patch up to 4.09mb per the Nugget's Guide. Also consider getting a version switcher from M4T (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3305) that will let you go between 4.08m & 4.09b1. The difference is tat many of the dedicated servers that are not using mods can only run 4.08m.. because an official 4.09mb1 dedicated server patch has not been released yet. The switcher will let you go back and forth between the versions with the click of a mouse. Make sure you are trying to join a Forgotten Battles room, also make sure that the room you re running is running the same version you have. You can just ask the host or sometimes it will state it.

You need the precise same version as the server

To play a 4.08m server you need exactly that 4.08m ... not 4.09mb1 and definitely no mods.


To play a 4.09mb1 you need 4.09mb1 .



One other question ... who is your service provider? If you are accessing via a school or university they may also have a firewall setup that is blocking you and is outside your control.

You open up a command window and type "ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" where xxx is the ip adress of the server.

For instance, try joining UKDedicated1 (which is a 4.08m server I'm familiar with):

press windowskey+R (small window with one line in it pops up)
enter "cmd" into the line, press Enter (a somewhat bigger black window pops up)
enter "ping 84.20.153.180" into the black window, press Enter and see what the result is

If you get a timeout problem when trying to join the UKD1 server with Il-2 1946 and the ping command works fine (does not time out), the problem is the network configuration of Il-2 1946.

Maybe you just need to edit the conf.ini file then. The conf.ini can be found in the root directory of your il-2 1946 installation. It has a section that reads something like this:

[NET]
speed=8000
routeChannels=0
serverChannels=15
localPort=21000
remotePort=21000
SkinDownload=1
serverName=No Name
serverDescription=
remoteHost=
localHost=xxx.xxx.xxx.xx
socksHost=
checkServerTimeSpeed=1
checkClientTimeSpeed=0

Can you please compare this to your configuration? What does it say in the localHost line, where I put all the xxx?
When I installed my version, I had to manually enter my ip address there. So if your line is blank, this may be the thing to do. To get your ip address you need to enter "ipconfig" into the small black window where you tried the ping command already. Sometimes there are several network adapters with several ip addresses, so if you don't know which one you're using you may need to try all of them.

The problem could still be elsewhere...

I got something in the local host. But when I try ipconfig it quickly flashes up and goes away! I did have a different number for the server channel? But I don't think that matters.

Hence the switcher.. it would give you more options... as for the router.. Make sure you have the following:

IL2
TCP 2100>2100
UDP 2100>2100

Hyperlobby
UDP 20999>20999
TCP 1698>1708

Teamspeak
UDP 8767>8767

That should help.. then get the switcher.. that way you can do DF servers or coops.. since most coops are running 4.09b if they aren't ruinning mods because of the new maps that came with that patch.

You need to open the black "cmd" window and enter "ipconfig" there. This way the result stays. Don't type ipconfig right into the small one line window.

Hello Bailout. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Try connecting directly from the multiplayer section of the game.
for instance UK Dedsicated IP is 84.20.153.180, so you click on multiplayer/connect to a server and type this address in the space provided:
84.20.153.180:21000

See if that works.

So did your ping work ok or timed out to Uk dedicated server?

If you got a timeout try trace route:

Start/Run/cmd/

in the black box that opens type:
tracert 84.20.153.180/Enter

You'll see the the route the connection takes to the server. If it works ok you'll get the "Trace complete" at the end of the test. If you get timeout, you'll see exactly where it times out.

Hi Bailout,

If you are overclocking your cpu you this might be your problem. Had the same problem when I was bumping my FSB up, worked fine offline but when I tried to connect to a server on Hyperlobby, would timeout or be dropped soon after entering game. Could get online and play other games, seemed to effect IL-2 until I dialed my FSB back down a bit.

You shouldn't need to forward ports on your router unless you're hosting a server. On the other hand, some routers also have firewall software. Check if that is enabled, and is so is the tcp/udp traffic on ports 20999 - 21000 allowed.

It sounds like hispeedirt may have a good suggestion too.

for instance UK Dedsicated IP is 84.20.153.180, so you click on multiplayer/connect to a server and type this address in the space provided:
84.20.153.180:21000

See if that works.

So did your ping work ok or timed out to Uk dedicated server?

If you got a timeout try trace route:

Start/Run/cmd/

in the black box that opens type:
tracert 84.20.153.180/Enter

You'll see the the route the connection takes to the server. If it works ok you'll get the "Trace complete" at the end of the test. If you get timeout, you'll see exactly where it times out.

I did the test and go trace complete. From what I understand I can connect to the ip address but something is not allowing it.

Now we just got to find what's stopping me from playing online.

Thanks bailout99

Give it a try.

Actually I had the same idea. As soon as I realized I couldn't join through hyperlobby I tried Xfire. But unfortuneatly no luck. I just tried some more servers today with no luck either.

Thanks for your suggestion bailout99

If you are overclocking your cpu you this might be your problem. Had the same problem when I was bumping my FSB up, worked fine offline but when I tried to connect to a server on Hyperlobby, would timeout or be dropped soon after entering game. Could get online and play other games, seemed to effect IL-2 until I dialed my FSB back down a bit.

Hi hispeeddirt. I'm unsure of what FSB means. Sorry for the lack of knowledge but can you inform me of what FSB means.
Thanks bailout99

FSB = Front Side Bus. If you're overclocking, changing the speed/frequency of the FSB is the method most commonly used...at least it used to be the last time I tried any overclocking.

Yeah fair enough. I doubt anybody in my family actually know what a FSB is (Not me anymore).

Maby u should try to pach up to 4.09b and see if u got the same problems then?


Also, when connecting to a server, hit the windows butten and check if ther are anything going on, like u having to allow IL2 to run or somethimg (firewall) I know u said IL2 was exempt, but ull never know with software.

Hmm, I've got the exact same problem, that I never had until my mom came home with a router one day, grr. What was it exactly that you had to change in the port forwarding information?

Sry been away for a bit.

The first step is you have to have a static IP address.

Second step is to input your ip address into the address bar in Google Chrome, Internet explorer, safari etc.

Then you need to tell me what router you have.

I have a D-Link Dl-524 router. After you've inputed your ip address into your address bar go to virtual server (Thats for my router) and input ports 2100 for TCP and UDP.

You should now be able to play.

If you need anymore help just ask, or anyone else that needs help

Here's basically where I got my info from

Hope this help Bailout99
