Thanks for stopping by,
I cannot connect to the game online? I have had a look at the other posts on here regarding connection and as far as I can see they don't seem to help me.

Or I could be doing something wrong?

I see this when I try to connect "your local ip address could not be retrieved"

O/S. MacBook Pro, Lion

Any help would be great.

Nope no suggestions really apart from checking your router config. if possible to see if you can remove some restrictions that might be present there.

Sorry I can't be more help.

Firewall or privacy settings issue. Go to ipchicken.com and see if it replies with your IP address. If it does, then you router is OK, it will be on the Mac side.

I generally play cribbage with a friend of mine. He has never been able to invite me to play, although in the past, he has been able to accept my invitations.

I had been able to invite and accept invitations with no problem until a recent move. At first, I thought it was the change in the router... although my children have been able to play all their online games with no problems. I tried all the suggestions I found on the forums and made two calls to technical support for my ISP, but I continue to get the Error Opening Ports message. I have been able to play online from time to time with other people, but I can no longer invite my friend to play -- the only reason he bought the game.

I am on a MacBook Pro with Lion. I have added the app to my permissions list with Allow Incoming Connections. I have tested various port numbers. I have tried turning off the firewall. My friend is on a Windows 7 PC and has also tried the usual suggestions with no luck. Any ideas on what we might do?

Nope sorry - I don't have any more suggestions at this time.

I'll have another look someday at the networking setup within the games to see if I can make it more reliable, although I've done this twice in the past with limited success and am running out of ideas as to what the problems might be.
