RubyGem behind an authenticating proxy

Adriano Rodrigues Ferreira
Posts: n/a

I would like to use RubyGem from behind an authenticating proxy, Squid, to
be exact.

There is the -P option, but I couldn't get it right. I tried things like

gem -P= -Ri module
gem --http_proxy= -Ri module (with IP numbers)

and I got just

Attempting remote installation of 'RedCloth'
407 Proxy Authentication Required

Then I tried URLs like this:


and also setting environment variables

But it really didn't care for my efforts. Anybody can give me some
instruction of how to make it work? I am using Windows 2000 (shame one me)
and "ruby 1.8.1 (2003-12-25) [i386-mswin32]".

Best regards,

I can't offer any real help; I can only say that RubyGems' proxy
handling is completely outsourced to 'open-uri'. If you can
demonstrate a simple app using just that, in which your particular
proxy works, it would help.
