use urllib, not httplib.
>>> import os, urllib
>>> os.environ["http_proxy"] = "http://proxyserver:3128"
>>> data = urllib.urlopen("http://server/page").read()
you can of course set the http_proxy environment variable before you start
Python. on Windows, you can also use the standard "Internet Options"
dialogue to configure the proxy.
