I know that sounds trivial, and the thread is two weeks old, but are you
sure you are connected to the Internet during that tests? It took me
yesterday 2 hours to find that problem on my local staging environment.
to configuration problems I could connect via ssh and remote control,
but my
network did not route requests from the staging to the Internet, the
got lost.

Ah, crap. Guess I missed that memo :slight_smile:

Never mind, then, and sorry for the noise.

It seems the problem is already solved, as noted in the external

It was a network problem.

Actually it wasn’t trivial. It helped me :0)

After the RubyGem/Bundler update mess yesterday, I was afraid there
was yet another problem with my set up. Turns out my Time Machine’s 5
GHz network was insanely unstable and caused the error. If it weren’t
for your post, I would have spent hours searching for the problem (as
I’m a Rails newbie). A big thank you to you Mr. Melzer is in order,
so “Thank you!”
