Warning: /root/.curlrc:1: warning: 'ip4' is unknown

This happened after executing:

\curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby and giving the

0curl: (7) Failed to connect to get.rvm.io port 443: Connection refused

What does this mean and how do I resolve the problem?


It seems that this happens due to a IPv6 misconfiguration.

Issue the command echo ip4 >> ~/.curlrc this will remember the --ip4 flag for all future curl commands, and should fix the problem.
