Hi IF fans,
I was just speaking to someone on Steam regarding connecting to Iron Front game servers and some people still use the in-game Remote option. The problem I find with this is that when you click Multiplayer the game freezes for around 10 - 20 seconds since GameSpy is gone. There is probably another way to fix this but this is what I do:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IronFront\Ironfront.exe" -nosplash -skipintro -connect=198.53.254.128 -port=2302 -mod=DLC_1

-nosplash
^^ Disables splash screens. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/-nosplash

-skipintro
^^ Disables world intros in the main menu permanently.

-mod=
^^ Loads the specified sub-folders for different mods. Separated by semi-colons. Absolute path and multiple stacked folders are possible. (LIB_1 = D-Day DLC)

-connect=<IP>
^^ Server IP to connect to.

-port=<Port>
^^ Server port to connect to.

-password=<Password>
^^ Server password to connect to.

-host
^^ Start a non-dedicated multiplayer host.

More options here:

198.53.254.128:2302 = Rowdy's Server

***

Go to your game installation folder...
Right click on ironfront.exe > Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
Right click on the IF desktop shortcut and click Properties
Add the following at the end of the target path:
-nosplash -skipintro -connect=198.53.254.128 -port=2302 -mod=DLC_1
It should now look like this:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IronFront\Ironfront.exe" -nosplash -skipintro -connect=198.53.254.128 -port=2302 -mod=DLC_1

This is nothing new or special but I find it useful and thought I would share just incase someone doesn't know about it.

Good to know Haz, every weekend Sat, Sun I play IF with Major Mayhem and its like you said the game freezes for like 10-20sec,
until you get to the server, I will def use this, as it takes to long to get into the game currently for MP.
By having this---> -mod=LIB_1
your basically running IF and then the mod parameter loads the DLC correct, should it be @LIB_DLC_1 to load it or is that what you have named your dlc?

Sorry, I made a mistake. It should be:
-mod=DLC_1
