Can host server but cannot join my own server?
This is caused by having different rez files specified on the command lines for the game server and the game client. The game client command line is the one visible when double clicking AvP2.exe -> Options. The game server has it's rez files specified in "customrez.txt".
Whenever I try to find a game it just closes the program! I am on Vista!!
Windows Vista has introduced a new feature that stops unwanted programs from starting and executing code on the users machine. However, this breaks a lot of compatibility with other programs.
Turn off UAC and try it again. You can find the option in your user account which is accessible via the control panel.
Is this compatible with the Bunny server mod?
Yes, it is. Install the Bunny mod, then install the master server mod (and yes, install the dedicated server from the patch). Add the avp2p5.rez to the customrez.txt and you're good to go.
I get an error when installing the mod, "could not write avp2p5.rez"?

World version is different from the server.
This is caused either because the server is using a map pack (UMP2 for example), mods, or because your AvP2 game installation was not updated to version 126.96.36.199 before applying the patch. Uninstall the master server patch, apply the official 188.8.131.52 patch, then re-install the master server mod.
