When attempting to install yard, I received the following error

[root@pptest ~]# gem i yard
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'yard' (>= 0), here is why:
Unable to download data from - Errno::ECONNREFUSED: Connection refused - connect(2) (

Once the URL was provided, I attempted to connect to the URL using curl

[root@pptest tmp]# curl -D -
HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
Server: nginx
Date: Fri, 07 Mar 2014 02:40:59 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 154
Connection: keep-alive

<title>302 Found</title>

302 Found


Next, I attempted to connect to the referenced URL and received the error message

[root@pptest tmp]# curl
curl: (7) couldn't connect to host

I could ping the host,, but could not connect to port 443. Is there a problem with this host?
