It looks like the Red Baron 3D metaservers have all shut down as of the start of this month, as we found out in October.  I've logged on the last couple of nights but haven't been able to connect to any official metaservers.  This is the last metaserver to die.  First was the Dynamic metaserver, which went offline in early 2000, then WON west, and now WON east.  New players to the game won't be able to find any servers without modifying their mplayer.ini file, which is usually located under C:\SIERRA\RedBaron3D\mplayer.ini

New players can find the latest mplayer.ini data at the forums at rb3d.net.  I've also compiled the list here, which is also available for download.  Just copy and paste the following in place of your old mplayer.ini file:
