Use GTA2 Game Hunter to find opponents. It's basically an IRC client with many features specific to GTA2. It doesn't add multiplayer to GTA2, it just uses the existing buggy GTA2 multiplayer that was really only intended for LAN games.

GTA2 Game Hunter is an application designed to simplify the process of finding, hosting and joining GTA2 multiplayer games. GTA2 Game Hunter adds a much needed chat lobby and server list. If you host a game using GTA2 Game Hunter then it detects when GTA2 network is ready for joiners and it adds your game to the server list. If your game is closed or you quit then it removes your game from the list.

GTA2 Game Hunter doesn’t solve all of GTA2’s multiplayer problems. If you don’t know anything about networks or routers then you are going to have a hard time getting it working. GTA2 requires many network ports to be open (even if you are only joining, you still need to open ports). If you try to play someone with a ping of over 100ms then GTA2 will run slowly for all players in the game.

You need to open these ports on your router/firewall:
47624 TCP/UDP
Port range 2300-2400 TCP/UDP.

Multiplayer guides:
How_to_master_GTA2_multiplayer - 106KB - PDF

It gives advice on gameplay and contains tips, tactics and some information on undocumented features/glitches. If you have been playing GTA2 multiplayer for many years then you may already know most of it but it's worth a read anyway. You should have played multiplayer at least a few times and be familiar with GTA2 or it will be hard to understand.
