Hi there,
I haev downloaded the latest version of VC-MP and when i put and IP address into the game nothing happens. I will just stay where i am and it just says connecting in green letters. Is there something wrong?

Perhaps it is an out of date server.

Are there any popular 24/7 server IP's i should be aware of?

Not a very clear thread but i would appreciate any input.
thanks

It could be down to your firewall blocking the required port. I had the same problem with my firewall i got it working by disabling the firewall while playing. I use Norton Internet security 2005.

Most servers use port 5192, which is the default when you edit the INI file.
Some servers might have other ports though. Check the serverlist for ports to the servers.
