I'am new using Ruby and i have a problem trying to install the pcap gem in my Windows 7.

This is what happens:

gem install pcap ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'pcap' (>=0) in any repository
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError) bad response Not Found 4040 (

What am i doing bad?

Thanks for all!!

    Could you please run "curl -I" on your machine and report the output. It appears to be working fine here, I suspect it's something in your configuration/environment.
