Python – URLError:

pythonpython-2.7urllib2

I am actually writing a code to check whether the links are direct or error or redirect or file download link

when i write these lines

import urllib2
response = urllib2.urlopen('http://google.com')

I get error as follows:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>
    response = urllib2.urlopen('http://google.com')
  File "C:\Python27\lib\urllib2.py", line 126, in urlopen
    return _opener.open(url, data, timeout)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\urllib2.py", line 391, in open
    response = self._open(req, data)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\urllib2.py", line 409, in _open
    '_open', req)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\urllib2.py", line 369, in _call_chain
    result = func(*args)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\urllib2.py", line 1173, in http_open
    return self.do_open(httplib.HTTPConnection, req)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\urllib2.py", line 1148, in do_open
    raise URLError(err)
URLError: <urlopen error [Errno 11004] getaddrinfo failed>

Y is this error occuring any ideas?? Is this because my company doenst allow to access websites this way?Thanks

Best Solution

A bit late, but did you check http://google.com in your browser? What response do you get?

As of now, HTTP connections are forwarded to the HTTPS and this works for me: import urllib2 response = urllib2.urlopen('http://google.com') print response.read()
