This Message tells that you are not connected to the internet or at least you can’t reach due to firewall restrictions or missing proxy settings. Please make sure you can connect to via telnet and that you can ping it.

If that doesn’t help please provide more information about your system, like the exact version of ruby gems installed, exact version of ruby, rails, et al, and last but not least your operating system.
