Hi,
I'm using ruby on a machine behind a severely locked down firewall
where all ports are closed by default, and I only open the ones I will
need.

What port does gem run through please?

Steve

And, it only downloads via port 80, it doesn't open any ports by
default.

You can run `gem server` which will listen on 8808, but usually this
is only for use on the local machine.
