I'm running 12.04 in a VM, and I am behind a corporate proxy.
I've got the environment variables set (tried both all lower and all upper case for [http|https|ftp]_proxy, as well as not specifying the user:pass but setting http_proxy_[user|pass])
I can access the web via curl/wget, and I have also gotten apt to use my proxy settings.
But I have been unable to get gem to install, or even list, any remote gems.
When I do try, I get the following:
$ sudo gem install hiera ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'hiera' (>= 0) in any repository ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError) Errno::ECONNREFUSED: Connection refused - connect(2) (http://rubygems.org/latest_specs.4.8.gz)
$ sudo gem list -r *** REMOTE GEMS *** ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError) Errno::ECONNREFUSED: Connection refused - connect(2) (http://rubygems.org/latest_specs.4.8.gz)
I did some searching on StackOverflow and have tried everything that did not require setting up a VPN or tunnel or external programs.
Is there something I am missing, or something about the env variables I have wrong?
Forgot to mention, I am able to download gems from my host workstation and install them that way, but I'd prefer to be able to install directly if at all possible. It's a hassle, especially when there are a lot of deps involved.
Also, for what it is worth: $ gem --version 1.8.15
