I reversed the roles of machines A and B.
I ran the server on B and gem install on A--
and it worked.

So, the problem is probably when gem_server
is run on the mac. The port 8808 must be open
since I can browse there, but I don't see any
other sharing options that I would need to set
for this to work.

Is there anything special one has to do to run gem_server
on OS X?

> Machine A:
>    % ruby -v
>    ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [powerpc-darwin7.7.0]
>    % gem -v
>    0.8.10
> Machine B:
>   % ruby -v
>   ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [sparc-solaris2.8]
>   % gem -v
>   0.8.10
> Also, browsing to the gem_server works just fine.
