Since it seems you can at least read, help yourself and look for this post:
"A Nugget's Guide To Getting Off The Ground..."

And turn your Caps Lock off.

Just do you'll know, this isn't a simple jump-in-and-play type of game. If that's what you're expecting then you'll end up perpetually fustrated. All of us have spent weeks, if not months (and years in some cases), learning how to simply get the basics right, let alone getting really good at the online shoot-ups and offline campaigns.

IL-2 is a deep, involving simulation, and an extremely rewarding one if you've got the patience for the learning curve.

IL2 1946 is not an XBOX 360 game. Very similar to real life, it takes anywhere from roughly 8-40 hours to get up and off the ground and start to get down even basic elements of flight like the 3 point landing, adjustment for prop torque on takeoff, basic trimming, etc....

Do what these other guys suggest and go read the Nuggets Guide slowly and step by step. When you get ready to go online and face other humans, head here:

And download the Newbie's Guide to IL2 Online Dogfighting. It will help you get up to speed with Hyperlobby and online combat.

Cheers - Jay

Even harder if you're trying to down planes with the Mouse/Keyboard combo.

One of you will need to host. To do this that person will need to:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE> <LI>Go to http://www.whatismyip.com/ and note their public IP address, provide this address to the other player
<LI> if that person is using a router or firewall, go to the configuration pages for that device/program and create a rule allowing connections on port 21000 for both UDP and TCP/IP traffic. For a software firewall on the computer being used to host, the rule will need to allow the game software to act as a server. See your router/firewall manuals for specific instructions on how to to this.
<LI> start the game, go to the in game Multiplayer - Create Server menu and choose either coop or dogfight mode then load a mission. Wait for the briefing screen to load. Do NOT go any further yet. [/list]
At this point the other player should start their game. They will need to choose the multiplay menu then choose join server.
In the join server screen they will need to type in the IP address noted in the first step above at the start of the information that is already there. If the IP address were 127.0.0.1, the information in that field would look like:

127.0.0.1:21000

Once the information is typed in, they should click the "Join" button. This will start the connection process.

When the second player has succesfully connected, the first player will see a message in the chat at the top of the screen indicating <playername> has joined the server.

From there you should be able to work it out yourselves from the instructions in the game manual.

That is fine if your computer is connected directly to the internet or if his friend is bring the other computer over and they're playing on a LAN. As the OP said his friend is playing from "down the road" and most people use an ADSL router modem (or cable modem equivalent), he will need his Internet IP address, not his LAN IP address. The IPCONFIG command will show your LAN IP address, not your Internet IP address. I could have told the OP to open the admin page of his router modem and check the status page for the Internet IP, but if he's unsure how to do this it's quicker and simpler to click the link.
