Proxy Authentication

Hi

I’m behind an authenticated proxy and want to install few plugins (for
rails and radrails) for which I tried using NTLM proxy Authenticator
but
could not succeed

I also tried
http://blog.pomozov.info/posts/the-end-of-gem-vs-proxy-war.html
http://pomozov.info/downloads/gems/rubygems-update-0.8.11.6-patched.gem
which corrupted my gem and had to reinstall all again :frowning:

Is there any other alternative for the same within ruby? (A non ruby
solution will also be thanked)

(I also found a bug reported for the same at RubyForge
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1289&group_id=126&atid=575
)

Thanks in advance

I wrote a gem that will authenticate with such a proxy using your
current
credentials. It is Win32 only.

To use it, follow these steps:

  1. Download and (locally) install the rubysspi gem found at
    http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubysspi/
  2. Copy “spa.rb” from the gem’s installation directory to your site_ruby
    directory (this allows the library to be included from the command line)
  3. Find “gem.cmd” in your ruby bin directory and add “-rspa” to the
    command
    line arguments passed to ruby there.
  4. Make sure the environment variable http_proxy is set to your proxy
    and is
    a valid URL (e.g. http://www.proxy.corp:8080)

That’s it! YOu can now run "gem install " from the command
line.

If you need a non-Win32 solution, or one that will authenticate as a
given
user, check out the Python APS server at
http://ntlmaps.sourceforge.net/

Hey Justin,

I followed the steps you told me and I am still not able to pass
authentication details the proxy server when I run ruby script/plugin

Try ruby -rspa script/plugin

Email me offline with more details if you wish.
