Dear All,

I'm having problems using the urllib module and was wondering if anyone
could suggest a solution. The only thing I can thing of is that I'm using at
university and my uni uses a compulsory proxy.

I'm using the python 2.3.3 and have tried both windows and Linux
environments. I've tried different urls as well.

Here's the code and error message I get



import urllib

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/urllib.py", line 76, in urlopen
return opener.open(url)
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/urllib.py", line 181, in open
return getattr(self, name)(url)
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/urllib.py", line 297, in open_http
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/httplib.py", line 712, in endheaders
