Hey guys. I have a few answers for you's.
1. Vista is compatible with Freelancer but doesnt like to get along with it. Your antivirus can play a big part of not being able to connect. I recommend using a free one like AVG and also make sure your firewall isnt blocking Freelancer.
2. Yes, the global server is down. There are some work-arounds though. There is a line you can edit in the Freelancer.ini file to show a substitute for the global server though I find it easier to use the FLDC tool. (Freelancer Direct Connect tool.)
If you know the IP of the server you want to join, there is a direct connect tool in the Freelancer directory inside the EXE folder.
I hope this is helpful.
