= What’s New
A small release for my library, which now provides a file that can be
into site_ruby and used to enable proxy authentication from the command
for any ruby script.
= Where to find it
Hosted on rubyforge:
Or via gem install:
gem install rubysspi
= What is it
Previously, if you had a proxy that required NTLM authentication you
to direct all your ruby calls to a local proxy such as the APS NTLM
http://ntlmaps.sourceforge.net/). This required you to enter your
into a file or on start up. WIth this gem, ruby libraries such as
and net/http can directly access internet sites and you never have to
your username or password into any configuration files.
= How to use
The file provided in this release is most useful for rubygems. To use
(assuming your rubygems is not working yet):
- Download the gem via rubyforge:
- Copy spa.rb from the rubysspi gem directory to your site_ruby\1.8
- set your http_proxy environment variable (e.g.
- Run rubygems:
ruby -rspa ‘C:\Program Files\ruby\bin\gem’ list --remote rubysspi
The adventerous can modify their gem.bat and gem.cmd files to include
library always, and then run the familiar gem commands directly.
