Hi,

I am halfway to getting a RoR application hosted on my local machine (This is my first foray into using RoR) and have installed Ruby, downloaded RubyGems and am trying to install Rails. Unfortunately i am unable to install new gems using command prompt as i'm receiving the error below.

Is there an alternate way to install Rails? Otherwise can somebody advise what request i have to put in in order to allow access to that site? (I can access that file via browser)

Thanks in advance
