    I cannot help ya with UBI site but can recommend that you try Hyperlobby. A lot of us here fly there. Here's the link.

    http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/

    You want to download and install hyperlobby client. Then launch and sign on. We'll see ya there. If you have any more questions give a shout.

    In your default FBAEP directory should be file "mg_snd.dll" it is known to create problems with connecting and causing timeout.I have searched forums here for it but it seems all the sorting that took place has left the file forsaken.

    Just head to "Community help" forum and ask for this file.

    OK Do this:

    In the Main FB folder (start-proggies-ubi soft-il2-fb you will find a program called "Setup" (Il2-Setup in c:/program files/ubi soft/il-2 forgotten battles/il2setup.exe)

    Run that, and check under the "Network" tab...
    If you have a "Default" IP there - change that to either of the numbers there (It will never work with "Default"). Also check a 56kbps speed (no matter what you have in reality) and Port 21000.

    Make sure your Window's firewall is OFF and that any commercial one you run does let port 21000 through

    Try Again...

    If you have a Router or a 2-IP address you CAN NOT host on UBI

    Also make sure you have Version 2.04 (Lower left when you start the game it will say Vx.xx above the Loading... message). If not 2.04 - then update (patches are at http://www.3dgamers.com/games/il2sturmovik2/).

    connection attempt to remote host failed rasom : time out

    In the case of 4 years in which I cannot fly online by hyperlobby in the rooms: Fun ~ 4 × 4.13.4, = IRSS = Dogfighter, HAVIS_DUEL AND HAVIS_RACE and Alex Server, I updated to the last path 4.14.1, I can only fly in new rooms, old rooms like the ones mentioned, no, I think the ping is too high

    I’m having problems with connecting to my friends realm, because always when i connect i get disconnected by remote host or just timeout about 10 seconds after connection. Is there any way to fix this problem? And no, the problem is not my connection I have stable 40 ping in all other games and no disconnects or anything from normal servers.
