I am trying to install Ruby On Rails on my office computer which runs
Windows XP Professional Edition. I get this error:
C:\>gem install rails --remote
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
Bad file descriptor - connect(2)(Errno::EBADF)
I suspect it is the firewall that is blocking the download because
I've had this at a previous office I worked at.
If I need to seek help from the IT support guys, who're not aware of
Rails and would not be able to figure out what the problem is, what
must I tell them to do precisely?
