Help Tracing urllib2 Error, Please?

Since it seems I have a "unique" problem, I wonder if anyone could
point me in the general/right direction for tracking down the issue
and resolving it myself.

See my prior post @ http://groups.google.com/group/comp....6b55161?hl=en#
for more info. (Python 2.5.2 on Win XP 64 ==>Squid Proxy requiring
Authentication ==>Internet not working.)

I've looked the urllib2 source over, but am having trouble following
it. As previously mentioned, urllib2 initiates the request, Squid
replies "407 error" that auth's required, and then urllib2 just stops,
throwing error 407.

Any though(s) on what to check out?

It's frustrating (to say the least) that it seems so many are
successfully accomplishing this task, and all's working perfectly for
them, but I'm failing miserably.

Would any quotes viewed in the HTTP traffic help? (Wireshark shows
all! :) I don't even know what other info could help.

Any info to get about Squid's configuration that might make it "non
standard" in a way that could cause my problem? Any question(s) I
should ask my Net Admin to relay info to you all?
As always, any/all help greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

Maybe Squid is configured to not allow sending authentication
directly in URI. Or maybe there is only digest scheme allowed.
Try this:

def getopener(proxy =None, digest=False):
opener = urllib2.build_o pener(urllib2.H TTPHandler)
if proxy:
passwd_mgr = urllib2.HTTPPas swordMgr()
passwd_mgr.add_ password(None, 'http://localhost:3128' , 'user', 'password')

if digest:
proxy_support = urllib2.ProxyDi gestAuthHandler (passwd_mgr)
else:
proxy_support = urllib2.ProxyBa sicAuthHandler( passwd_mgr)
opener.add_hand ler(proxy_suppo rt)
return opener
def fetchurl(url, opener):
f = opener.open(url )
data = f.read()
f.close()
return data

print fetchurl('http://www.python.org' , getopener('127. 0.0.1:3128'))
print fetchurl('http://www.python.org' , getopener('127. 0.0.1:3128', digest=True))

HTH,

When I request a URL using urllib2, it appears that urllib2 always makes the request using HTTP 1.0, and not HTTP 1.1. I'm trying to use the "If-None-Match"/"ETag" HTTP headers to conserve bandwidth, but if I'm not mistaken, these are HTTP 1.1 headers, so I can't reasonably expect a web server to respond correctly to my requests. (In my limited testing, it looks like some servers respond correctly with an HTTP 304 status, while some...

Hi everyone, I have a question about using urllib2. I like urllib2 better than urllib at least in part because it has more elaborate support for handling errors: there is built in support for URLError (for faulty urls) and HTTPError (for http errors that might originate from, say, passing an invalid stock-ticker in the program below). However I can get neither to work. I'm attaching below the (very short) code: can anyone point out...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
