Hi All,
             I am trying to fetch HTML content from a website that has
different version of pages for "logged" users and "guseuests" users. I need
to fetch the "logged" user pages. The problem is, even with the use of basic
authentication, I am getting "guest" user page with urllib2.urlopen. The
code can be seen here.

Any suggestions/pointers/solutions?

Thanks and regards,
Mohit Ranka.
