It looks like the problem I was having had to do with not setting a proxy for the RestClient.
Using the Interactive Ruby command prompt really helped me troubleshoot the problem. Before executing the RestClient.get, I had to call
RestClient.proxy = "proxy url"
RestClient.proxy = "http://wwwgate0.mot.com:1080" (works for Moto Employees)
Some documentation I found on RestClient: https://github.com/adamwiggins/rest-client/blob/master/README.rdoc
If we're not using RestClient, how do we set the proxy information for the app? (PS: It's a Rhodes application, not a RhoConnect one)
I'm trying to follow the Mapping & Geolocation webinar, but am having problems with syncing with the contact information (as shown in the video).
I've tried adding "net-http" to the extensions in build.yml, but that didn't work.
Also when you are at a Dos command prompt (with Ruby not an interactive ruby command prompt), you can set the Proxy to be used (like when you want to do a gem update [gem]):
