Connection refused on new install--Not Question

Downloaded/installed Ruby on Rails 1.0 on Windows,
rails path/to/your/new/application
cd path/to/your/new/application
ruby script/server
and tried to access it on, got connection refused
error in firefox.

tried again using
ruby script/server -b
and it worked just fine, the url is now:

For some reason, my machine don’t like The -b switch allows you
to pick a different IP and that worked.

Hope this helps someone.
