Hi all, I am hoping someone can shed some light on what I am doing wrong
here.  I have a simple class that I created using the rails scaffold
script

TestServer
     name :string
     serverid :integer

I am trying to connect to it using restful webservices.  Get and destroy
are working, but I cannot get post or put to work at all

my client code is very simple

#!/usr/bin/ruby


require 'restclient'

result = RestClient.get 'http://localhost:3000/testservers/1'

print result


RestClient.post 'http://localhost:3000/testservers',:name=> 'test server
c'



running this returns

anyone have any ideas about what I am missing here?

Thanks
