Ruby Gems and the Mysterious 403 Error

Hello all.

When I attempt to install any remote gem, I get the following error:

ERROR: While executing gem … (OpenURI::HTTPError)
403 Forbidden

I first noticed this a couple weeks ago.

This is a Windows XP system.
I am going through a proxy server.
I can list and search through the remote gems. The error only occurs
when I
attempt to install a gem.

Thank you in advance for your help.

i didn’t have exactly the same prob nor make use of win* however, in
my case removing the gems cache did the trick.

it is located in GEM_HOME :

~%> ls $GEM_HOME
cache doc gems source_cache
specifications

~%> ls $GEM_HOME/cache
cmdparse-2.0.2.gem

hope that’s help :wink:

Hmm… no such luck. Thank you for the suggestion, though.
