Starting Webrick on a different port

Often you may need to start webrick on a different port. Luckily, you can do so using the -p options.

[root@srv31 ror]# ruby script/server -p 9191
=> Booting WEBrick...
=> Rails application started on
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options
[2006-08-21 13:45:37] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1
[2006-08-21 13:45:37] INFO ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i686-linux]
[2006-08-21 13:45:37] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=4812 port=9191

For more help options use the --help option:

[root@srv31 ror]# ruby script/server --help
=> Booting WEBrick...
Usage: ruby server [options]

How to run ruby server with use many port ?
For example, i want to run ruby server on port 3001-3010. Thank you.

Christeddy, you'll have to use a firewall to do that. If you're on Linux, you can use an iptables NAT redirection to pull that off fairly easily.

Easy to set up web alternatives using
Ruby on Rails as it works well with broad range of web servers and directories that apply CGI or Fast SGI.
