I doubt there are any 1.2 servers available. You must be running same version as server. Most are running AEP 2.01 now.

This is a known problem with one of the patches.

I think you probably have version 1.21 (as opposed to 1.2 which was only ever released as beta). So downloading the 'patch122_over121.exe' from here:
http://www.3dgamers.com/games/il2sturmovik2/#filelist
will solve your problem. If you really do have 1.2beta, you could probably also use the above patch without problems.

Actually, it is only the sound dynamic library that is causing your time-outs, so if you didn't want to upgrade to 1.22 for some reason, all you need to do is replace your version of 'mg_snd.dll' that is in your FB directory. Get it here (provided by from one of the UBI moderators): http://www.kurita.sk/PRIVATE/webfiles/mg_snd.zip

One question though. Who are you playing with online that also has version 1.21?? Most people who host games will be using at the very least 1.22 (but most usually 'Aces Expansion Pack'). If the host has a different game version from you, you will not be able to join and will be kicked... maybe that's what you're descibing as a 'time-out'?
