Can't Access Mongrel on Vista

Hello,

I am new to developing in Rails. I created a rails project using ‘rails
mydiary’. Used ‘ruby script/generate scaffold Entry title:string
content:text’ to generate scaffolding for the entry table. Did ‘rake
db:migrate’ to create the entry table. Then ran ‘ruby script/server’.
All of this worked. I get the message ‘Rails 2.3.3 application starting
on http://0.0.0.0:3000’.

But when I go to ‘http://0.0.0.0:3000’ on FireFox I get a ‘can’t
establish connection to server’ error. I tried IE but this did not also
work.

I looked at the ‘server.log’ file under the ‘log’ folder. This file is
blank.

Any ideas on what I can try?

Thanks,
Prasanna

0.0.0.0 is not a valid ip address. When mongrel etc says it is
listening on 0.0.0.0 that is merely shorthand for ‘i am listening on
all the ip addresses that this machine has’. Pick anyone of those (eg
127.0.0.1) and you should be ok.
