download_setuptools fails with authenticating proxy

Reported by: skip_spm@… Owned by: adrian

The download_setuptools uses module urllib2 to get the setuptools module. It isn't properly setup to handle an autheticating proxy. I'm not sure how to include/enable this support for your shipping product, but here is the code that I injected into download_setuptools to get it to work through my company's authenticating proxy server (at line 102 insert the following):

username = "myusername"
password = "mypassword"
authinfo = urllib2.HTTPBasicAuthHandler()
authinfo.add_password('', '', username, password)
proxy_support = urllib2.ProxyHandler({"http" : "" % (username, password)})
opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy_support, authinfo, urllib2.HTTPHandler)

Edit username and password to the appropriate values.

I hope this helps in some small way. I haven't tried django yet (just finished getting the install to work :). I'll try django out soon and hope that it provides the solution that I'm currently searching for.

Good luck,
Brett Hunt

Could an admin please sanitize that attachment. It has sensitive information in it and I just attached it without cleaning it up first.

Thanks, Brett Hunt

  • Resolution set to invalid

Looks to be a setuptools bug, which they may have fixed by now. (I'm not sure...)
