Try to use the ProxyHandler of urllib2.

import urllib2
proxy_url = 'http://' + PROXY_USER + ':' + PROXY_PASSWORD + \ '@' + PROXY_IP + ':' + PROXY_PORT
proxy_support = urllib2.ProxyHandler({'http': proxy_url})
opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy_support, urllib2.HTTPHandler)
urllib2.install_opener(opener)
print urllib2.urlopen(req).read()

> urllib2.URLError: <urlopen error (10054, 'Connection reset by peer')>

The error indicates a network issue. Please see the difference when you use
the ProxyHandler to try it.
