Hello everyone, I recently picked up the Agile web dev with Rail book
and followed the installation instructions for Windows using
InstantRails… well it works up until the point i try to…
‘gem update rails --include-dependencies’
… i end up with the following error message:
pdating installed gems…
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
A Request to send ro recieve data was disallowed because the
socket is not connected and (when sending a datagam socket using a
sendto call) no address was supplied. (Errno::ENOTCONN) getting size
hmmm don’t really know what all that means… there isn’t a firewall
blocking it… so i tried the RubyonRails.org method of installation
and i was able to progress as far as installing gems…
‘gem install rails --include-dependencies -v’
…i get this error message:
ERROR: http://gems.rubyforge.org/ does not appear to be a repository
ERROR: could not find gem rails locally or in a repository.
now i can ping gems.rubyforge.org… i see the firewall allowing ruby
to go out to this address yet gem doesn’t seem to have any luck gettin
out to the net.
4 hours of searching thought manuals, docs, forums, tutorials and
various blogs on http proxy, im still at a loss. The firewall was
turned off completely and still no change, i just uninstalled hamachi
just incase… no change… I’m behind a netgear router im not sure if
that is a factor or not.
Any help or insight to this situation would be greatly appreciated,
My OS: Windows XP pro, SP1.
