Hi Amjith, Ruby (the language) gives you a few possibilities for connecting to a remote server. For your needs you'll probably want Net::HTTP, also check out the excellent open-uri. Both are included in the standard Ruby dist, so just do: require 'rubygems' require 'open-uri' thepage = open('http://someurl.com/mypage') Rails (the framework) also comes with a library for consuming REST based webservices, so if that's your thing you should check it out, it's called active_resource. /Jonas P.S.: Some years ago two guys called Larry and Sergei started a rather nifty website which helps in researching this sort of thing. Can't seem to remember the name, has a lot of o's in it though.
