Well, I have found! after re-installing InstantRails on another PC, the 
firewall asked which access right must be given to Ruby Interpreter. I 
answered "total access" and the connection to localhost:3000 was 
successfull.

On my laptop, I remember I answered "incoming access" on the first time 
and this access right was registered and always applied by McAfee 
Personal Firewall, turned on or turned off... But maybe I don't know 
very well how McAffe works, but the fact is thre was no other access 
right request for Ruby Interpreter.

So we can say that Ruby Interpreter needs "total access" to internet. If 
not, the WEBRick server cannot receive incoming requests from any PC, 
local or distant, and cannot send any datas. The "total access" right 
must be given before the "ruby script/server" command. Maybe this rule 
should be explicited in the documentation...

Thanks to Curt.
