Is there any reason/way for

Net::HTTP.get_response('www.google.com', '/index.html')

to fail?

I have this working on countless computers - even inside corporate
networks, but in one particular corporate network - I do not get a
response back. Could this have something to do with proxy/firewall
setups etc?
