Re: Gem, Proxy and MS authentication


#1

H,

I’ve been trying to fight my way through our over zealous MS proxy
server for years. Ruby, Java and, somewhat ironically, .NET apps had all
been getting rejected. The only way through was via the IE COM
interface. The proxy that David recommends works perfectly.


BEFORE:

gem search mechanize -r

*** REMOTE GEMS ***
ERROR: While executing gem … (SocketError)
getaddrinfo: no address associated with hostname.


AFTER:

gem search mechanize -r -p http://localhost:5865

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

mechanize (0.4.3, 0.4.2, 0.4.1, 0.4.0, 0.3.1, 0.3.0, 0.2.3, 0.2.2,
0.2.1, 0.2.0, 0.1.3, 0.1.2, 0.1.1, 0.1.0)
Mechanize provides automated web-browsing


Thanks,
Stu
