How to Create Leads in SugarCRM using REST API with Ruby SugarCRM gem?

I am really asking 3 questions here:

1) I am trying to craft the proper POST method request to send to the server using ruby to create a Lead inside of a Sugarcrm environment that is run locally.

2) So I tried using the gem: https://github.com/chicks/sugarcrm
It doesn't appear to work when I do the following:

After I have already connected to the server using the SugarCRM.connect() method
Now I proceed to try:
SugarCRM::Leads.create( :title => 'test', :firstname => 'testName', :lastname => 'testlastname')

I check the UI it is not populated. I then proceed to run the exact same test manually through the UI and it works and creates a Lead.

I don't know if anyone has experience with that gem, if not, please just provide information on being able to craft the request through a REST client.

I am running: SugarCRM Enterprise, Version 7.6.1.0 (Build 1163)

3) Also, is there a server config or setting that enables REST access?
Or are these services available out of the box by default configs.

Thanks.
