it's supposed to be TCP (at least that's what works for me)

Go to multiplayer options and make sure the TCPIP is checked instead of IPX.

Hey guys, Im new to FS2 Online, but Ive been playing Freespace ever since FS1 was out (it came as a free game with a friend of mines copy of WIndows 98 I think, hooked ever since :D).  I discovered the SCP a while back, and I am currently using the 3.6.7 build.  When I go to join a multiplayer game, there are no game servers up and running, am I doing something wrong or is it just that there are no servers.  I have also registered an account and have the mulitplayer config file.  Sorry if this is a newbie question.

From the looks of all the other threads, it seems there has been a lot of effort to get to this point, and thanks to all those who kept this game alive.

It's probably just that there are no servers up at the moment. The multiplayer community is quite small at the moment. If you suggest a time to play you're more likely to find other players than simply wandering online hoping to see some.
