Hi all, I'm having a very, very vexing problem regarding Socket#write and, therefore, all scripts that depend on it (including WEBrick, thus the Rails angle.) I posed this problem to the ruby-talk list, but I didn't get a response there, so I pose it to you fine people. In short, my problem is that Socket#write doesn't return, it just hangs. I'm using One-click Ruby 1.8.2-15 (and I tried -14, too) on Windows XP Pro SP2. I'm on a network behind a Linux gateway, but no proxy is used. I have no local firewall software, nor any software which I could imagine would affect my network connection. Further, Ruby works great on all the other machines on my network. What's most troubling is this is a new computer, and therefore a relatively fresh install of Windows that hasn't been mucked up yet. My old system ran Ruby fine, as does every other machine on the network, so I'll be damned if I can isolate a variable here. I'd be incredibly appreciative of any help I can get. -- -Matt T.
