Martin,
Thank you for your reply.

It looks like this

MyPythonProgram --->Proxy---->Server
The  proxy is written in Java. I want to use that proxy to see what my
Python program sends to server.
The proxy uses its own certificate and this certificate must be
trusted, I think, otherwise I receive an error.

If I use
InternetBrowser --->Proxy---->Server

browser asks me if the Proxy's certificate is trusted.If I reply  YES,
than communication continues( I think browser adds this certificate
among trusted ones)

So, can you help, please?
Thanks.
L.
