$ ruby -v

‘gem install **’ will raise Timeout::Error forever in Cygwin Ruby1.9!

ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)

However,I can get ‘’ quickly use
some code in irb:
irb(main):001:0> require ‘net/http’
=> true
irb(main):002:0> http =‘’,80)
=> #<Net::HTTP open=false>
irb(main):003:0> request =’/Marshal.4.8’)
=> #<Net::HTTP::Head HEAD>
irb(main):004:0> resp = http.request request
=> #<Net::HTTPOK 200 OK readbody=true>

‘gem install **’ will work fine both in my windows Ruby1.9 and in Ubuntu
Ruby1.9,and they are all compiled from the same source.
I have try more than 20 times,and ‘gem install **’ will raise
Timeout::Error forever,how can I resolve it?
