Webrick server does not respond forever

I had to reinstall Windows, and Ruby/RoR as well.

Ruby seems to work fine, but when I start Webrick and try to open
http://localhost:3000, my browser (both IE and Firefox) keeps waiting
forever. It nevers times out, just waiting and wating…

Disabling firewall and other obvious candidates did not help. I hope it
is something very trivial, but I am totally lost.

Please help.

Hmm, is it possible to edit the messages here?

Anyway, just wanted to mention that it used to work just fine on my
previous Windows installation, the only difference is fresh Win XP
installation and newer versions of Ruby/RoR.

Cheers.

No, the forum is just a web interface to a mailing list (there are
others, I use
http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.rails for example)

Hmm, until you said that I would have thought it was a stray breakpoint
or
something. What error messages are there either on screen if you start
script/server or in the log/ directory?

I tried it via Radrails and in command line, it made no difference, the
browser stalls indefinitely.

It has to be some fundemantal flaw because it fails so badly, but I
cannot figure it out. :frowning:

I do need this runnig properly, but I just cannot afford going through
reinstallation again :frowning:

Garet,

There is nothing in Webrick log and browser window is empty. It does not
time out, just waits… weird

In status line it says ‘waiting for localhost’. If I try to reach on
localhost on the wrong port, it correctly gives me an error message, but
stalls on the right one. It feels like something is ‘broken’, but I
cannot get what.

I quit all network programs, antiviruses, and firewall… still no
effect.

Search on Google indicate a very small number of people run into the
same problem, but no solution/reason is suggested.

Cheers.

Hi Aleksey,
I am having a similiar probelm to the one you have described (on linux
and mysql). have you found a solution to the problem?
