Rails installation problem on windows

Hi     I installed ruby and mysql .And when tried from prompt gem install rails --include-dependencies    it gives the error

ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)     A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly res pond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. - connect(2)(Errno::ETIMEDOUT)           Please help


It could be that you have a firewall blocking the connection or similar. Try to open it up for gem.

Just do   set http_proxy=http://ipaddress:port
