Sample code?  Hard to say what's wrong without actually seeing the code
you're using and the site you're trying to poke with it.

The only thing that barely rings a bell is that the urllib.URLOpener
classes by default prompt you for HTTP authentication, but I've never
seen the prompt myself so can't tell you if that's what's going on here.
