Question Can't connect to friends

I know this issue has been discussed, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer by searching. I can connect to public games and most friends, but I can't seem to connect to some friends. We both can receive the invite, but can't seem to connect to the server. Tried joining from public games, private games, and main screen. No luck joining friends game. Any suggestions?

They have to optimize their router settings (portforwarding, setting a static I.P. address) or this problem will persist.

We’re looking into this and any additional details you could provide would be very helpful.

When did you first experience this? Does this happen consistently? Are you using a disc-based copy of Borderlands or a digital download?

Send any information you can to the Contact Form at gearboxsoftware.com and select the 'Support' category.

Thanks for your reply JustinL. I did give my PS3 a static IP and went thru the whole port forwarding process a while back. Now, as far as I can tell I can connect to all of my friends. The process was not all that difficult. I just followed the info here in the stickies and portforwarding.com. I am fairly computer illiterate, so if I can do it anyone can.
