Can't Get a Server Going.

I use the 'rails server' command, but when I enter the into my browser, nothing happens. Can anyone explain to me why or how this is happening?

Notes - Operating System : Windows 64-bit

I just went through this last night myself and after a little research I found if I typed localhost:3000 it would connect. Not sure if it's a difference between Mac and Windows, but it worked for me.

Thank you so much, it worked!
