There's actually what we call a metaserver.
This is a server only used to setup games.
When you launch CoCoNet, it asks to the server the games being created and shows you the list. You then double click on the game to join it.
You will not see ongoing games because you can't join them. You can only join games before they are launched = at the lobby (master creating or loading a game).
When i play, i always use this feature to join games created by friends. I never connect by IP on Internet or LAN (even if it works too).
You can check all ongoing or being created games at the Metaserver page:CoCoNet Metaserver

I really don't know why it doesn't work for you.
The metaserver uses HTTP port 80, so this is really easy to enable CoCoNet on your firewall or router.
You create a game, and before you check ready at the lobby, you tell your friend it's ok. He clicks on refresh and the game will be shown so he can join.
Tell me if something goes wrong for you, i will try to give more explanation.
