Ruby on Rails Thursday, January 31, 2013

I tried running msconfig, chose selective startup, then rebooted. Thereafter, I could browse with IE, Firefox, but once I stop browsing for a while, and then try again, they fail again. No, I do not have a firewall. I'm very concerned as I have developed the rails app on the machine and desperately need to get the app back up and running. Can you tell me the name of the process that runs Webrick on Windows?

?! It's been years since I've touched a Windows machine, but that
sounds like your system is totally b0rk3d. Do you have a firewall
of some sort that might be affecting networking?

Try using basic networking tools like ping, traceroute, telnet, etc.;
if your system crash was extremely ungraceful, you might have an
OS reinstall ahead of you...

Good luck,
