I tried sending some standard headers, but it still hung and then came
back with "connection reset by peer."

``````````````````````````````````
import httplib

h = httplib.HTTP("redherring.com")
h.connect()
h.putrequest("GET","/")
h.putheader("Accept", "text/html")
h.putheader("Accept", "text/plain")
h.putheader("User-Agent", "Mozilla/4.08 [en] (Windows NT 5.0)")
h.putheader("Accept", "image/gif, image/jpeg")
h.putheader("Accept-Language", "en")
h.putheader("Accept-Charset", "iso-8859-1,*,utf-8")
h.endheaders()

errcode, errmsg, headers = h.getreply()
f = h.getfile()
s = f.read()
f.close()

print h
print "content length: %d" % len(s)
