I am trying to access a .net page via my ruby app and pass it a couple
parameters. Every thing I have tried has resulted in this Bad file
descriptor, I am wondering if it is something wrong with my
configuration, not the code. Here is the code that is causing
problems:

Net::HTTP.version_1_2
    Net::HTTP.start('www.url.com', 80) {
     |http|
     response =
        http.post('/DoSomething.aspx',
'id=#{params[:id]}&path=#{params[:imagerecord]}',
                  { 'Content-Type' => 'application/x-www-form-
urlencoded' })
     puts response.body()
   }

Here is the error I get:

Errno::EBADF (Bad file descriptor - connect(2)):
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `initialize'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `connect'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/timeout.rb:48:in `timeout'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/timeout.rb:76:in `timeout'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `connect'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:553:in `do_start'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:542:in `start'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:440:in `start'

I am on Windows 2003 serer with Ruby 1.8.4 and Mongrel. Any help would
be greatly appreciated.
