Gem update

Hi,

I’m behind a firewall. How can I update ruby modules?

If I try to do a

gem update --system

I get the following error:

ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
getaddrinfo: no address associated with hostname.(SocketError)

PS: Windows XP SP3 - Ruby 1.8.6

Thanks!

Sounds like it is either your firewall or DNS/Routing problems then. In
other words it’s more of a system/network problem than a ruby one. You
could try downloading and installing it manually if you can get to the
gem
to download it.
