The servers went down on October 8th.

The matchmaking server was shut down. You can still host games using LAN, and Join IP. But the server's can't see eachother using the normal list atm.

For now people are using GameRanger. Here's a pm from Juggernaught on BZ2Maps.com forums, it explains the work arounds:

Quote from: Juggernaut
As of Oct. 9th, 2012 (without notice I may add), GLU Mobile, the new owners of Powered by Gamespy's Gameslisting Service, decided to disable support for Battlezone 2 and many other older PC, PS2 games!! ~x( :smt071 http://www.ps2onlinegaming.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=1246
*Edit: Apparently this may be Activision's doing. http://bzforum.matesfamily.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1541

What does this mean?
[size=125]It means you will not see any multiplayer games listed when launching BZ2 + many other popular titles for the PC, PS2 + +.[/size]
Battlezone II now reads this upon clicking Multiplayer button:


[size=150]2 ways we can still play Battlezone II online without Gamespy[/size].

(1) Gameranger is the current easiest option, forwards ports automatically and provides a listing of BZ2 servers using Gameranger.
Download free: http://gameranger.com.
GR has great chat features, ease of use, and access to many other games, but max 8 players and launching of BZ2 MODs (e.g. G66, UEP ...) will not work UNLESS you also install: TnT's mod selector for GameRanger. Thanks TnT: TnT's BZ2 mod selector for GameRanger

(2) Connecting Direct ('Join IP' in BZ2 shell). Click 'Join IP' and type in the IP of the BZ2 server you connect to (usually posted in Teamspeak chat., e.g. 132.243.12.75:17770). To be able to HOST BZ2 with this method, it requires ports 17770, 17771, 17772 to be open on your router for others to join you. You can use http://portforward.com for assistance if you want to host (just substitute any game listed with ports (17770, 17771, 17772) for your listed model router. Many here meet on the Teamspeak 3 Server to exchange IPs and list games, here: http://bz2maps.us/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3691

A new gamelisting service for BZ2 will eventually be implemented into the next Public Beta release. I just hope it's sooner rather than later.  [-o<

Viva La BZ2 !!  :smt035

If GSH banned you from the forum then you thoroughly deserved it.

The download for GameRanger is in the GameRanger link.

If you're referring to TnT's Mod Selector, it's here: https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=591d82f6a3a53be0&id=591D82F6A3A53BE0!126

It truncated, you'll need to append the !126 manually.
