urllib.urlopen() may be what you're looking for:


If you're using an HTTP proxy, you can first set the 'http_proxy'
environmental variable, and then urllib.urlopen() will use that when it
retrieves http resources.  urlllib.urlopen() also supports POST if we send
the data as a second parameter to urlopen().

Good luck!
