socket in python with proxies

Hi, I have a proxy server that requires authentication on a non-standard
port and Im trying to connect to it via socket.connect()
I tried doing this:
import socket
server = ("username:pa******@proxyaddrs.com",1234)
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect(server)

I keep getting the

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#6>", line 1, in <module>
s.connect(server)
File "<string>", line 1, in connect
gaierror: (11001, 'getaddrinfo failed')

What does this mean? and can I actually use username/password to connect
using a socket in python?
Thanks
Astan
