Is this computer behind a router or directly connected to the internet?

If behind a router you should have a LAN IP typically in the range of 192.168.1.xxx and you must have that selected as your Local IP. Then you must set port forward entries for 8087 and 8088 in your router setup that point to that Local IP.

If you're directly connected to the internet then make sure your Local IP and Internet IP settings are the same and are correct. Use the Lookup button to make sure . You can also include the localhost address (127.0.0.1) as one of the Local IPs but it can't be the only one.

Also you should patch up to the latest version. There have been a lot of changes since 2.38.

about the ip issue that computer has two network interfaces
one for local network and its assigned via dhcp by the way i have access via lan
and the other is connected directly to the internet (it has a real ip)

What do you have set for the Internet IP address and the Local IP address in the Poker Mavens configuration? If you set "Directory listing" to Yes, can you get your site to show up in the listing at http://www.pokermavens.net ?

i filled the internet ip address field with the real ip[ coming from my isp and the local ip address ifilled it with the ip coming from the dhcp and the loopback address
about the directory listing iits listed its www.mcholdem.com but the ip address when u press play poker isnt the good one bcoz its the site builders real ip and they didnt change it yet for me, now i am testing it using another real ip and to access it i put in the address bar http://MY REAL IP:8087 and still cant access it and the weird thing i allready opened the ports 8088 and 8087 and added the program in the firewall options.
thanks for ur reply

How exactly did you "open the ports"?

I'm not a network person but in a conventional LAN, there is usually a router acting as the DCHP device that is assigning local IP addresses to the various computers on the network. It's inside that router where you have to make port forward settings so that requests on your internet IP are forwarded to your local LAN IP.
