Python – How to specify an authenticated proxy for a python http connection

httpproxypython

What's the best way to specify a proxy with username and password for an http connection in python?

Best Solution

This works for me:

import urllib2

proxy = urllib2.ProxyHandler({'http': 'http://
username:password@proxyurl:proxyport'})
auth = urllib2.HTTPBasicAuthHandler()
opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy, auth, urllib2.HTTPHandler)
urllib2.install_opener(opener)

conn = urllib2.urlopen('http://python.org')
return_str = conn.read()
