When I've got issues like yours, I usually try using a console client 
(telnet/curl/wget,...) adding all needed headers/data manually so I'm 
totally sure the request is OK, if everything goes Ok you know your 
python code need to be reviewed but when you are under proxies you can 
find a lot of not python related issues (bad gateways, using proxy when 
it shouldn't or vice-versa, requests changed by proxy,....).

wireshark can be very useful but in situations like this I usually 
prefer tcpflow output, I think the request/response flow showed is 
really useful, but that's a personal preference.

HTH,
bye
