ok, some of the common causes for being unable to connect, load the missions, or the timeouts.

1. Drop software firewalls on yours and host machine (if possible). Retry

2. recheck ip address, maybe it was told to you wrong or you misstyped it.

3. if its just a couple friends trying to hook up, check if the host machine is behind a router, if it is the proper ports need to be forwarded.

4. if it finds the server, connects but fails to load, or loads but fails on trying to fly.
Veryfy all machines are running the same versions and properly patched.


9 times out of 10 its one of those.
