Indeed, welcome firefighter, and there definitely are only a few Desert Combat servers left it seems.

You should be able to connect to our server now, once you get everything installed. If your IP address changes in the future, it might be necessary to look at the ea117.com/access info and PM us your updated IP address, and we'll get the server updated with your info. But for right now, you're already good to go, and you should simply attempt connecting to the server once you have the game and Punkbuster installed.

Did not catch you while you were still on TeamSpeak, but the typical reason for "when I go to the Multiplayer menu and use Update to retrieve a current list of servers, I don't see any servers" is that you need the fix for the fact that GameSpy shut down the master server for Battlefield 1942 back in 2014.

But that should have been addressed by Step 8:
So perhaps be sure that step was actually completed successfully. Since once you apply that updated patch, your game will actually be querying the community-created master.bf1942.sk server instead of the now-offline GameSpy master server.

Maybe also take a look at the http://ea117.com/dcrules/ page too, just to know what's expected on this server. Every server sets some expectation about whether it's okay to attack the main base, whether it's okay to use C4 to protect a CTF flag, etc., and this page lists what's expected here on EA117.

Oh, it looks like you're in on the server successfully now! Have fun.
