Are the servers running okay? I get the same error if I try to wget the gem file as if I gem install it.

Connecting to production.cf.rubygems.org (production.cf.rubygems.org)||:80... connected.

    It's working here…can you try refreshing your DNS?

    The server am working with doesn't cache dns. It appears the problem is with just this one server and it is intermittent, so I will troubleshoot it there. Your servers are accesible fine from a box on a different network I tried, so all is probably fine on your end. Thanks for the reply! :-)
