urllib fails to connect

I'm running ActiveState Python 2.5 on Windows XP. It used
to work fine. Today however I get (10061, 'Connection refused')
for any site I try with urllib.urlopen().

I found out why. I set a proxy in IE and I didn't know
ActiveState Python use IE proxy!

May be the host is Listening on the port you are connecting to or the
host isnt availible

if u on a LAN try to ping the host first and Disable the Firewall on
Hosts Computer

Perhaps IE's proxy settings are effectively setting the Windows system
networking proxy settings?

My guess is urllib.urlopen() wraps the wininet calls, which share
IE proxy settings.

urllib doesn't use wininet, but it does fetch the proxy settings from
the Windows registry.
