( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi fellow monks,

Ok, here's where I stand at the moment. I'm trying to access an intranet web page in order to fill in some forms but the obstacle at the moment is the company's proxy and authentication for the proxy. In my code, i tried accessing google with the same failed result. And btw, I do not know how to get the realm field under $mech->credentials. If someone could enlighten me, it would be very much appreciated!!

Here's my code:

use WWW::Mechanize; use LWP::UserAgent; use MIME::Base64; use strict; my $url = ''; my $proxy = ''; my $alias = 'Windows IE 6'; my $username = 'user'; my $password = 'passwd'; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 1, agent => $alias); $mech->proxy(['http', 'ftp'], $proxy); $ENV{'http_proxy'} = $proxy; my @args = ( Authorization => "Basic" . MIME::Base64::encode( $username . ":" . $pa +ssword ) ); $mech->credentials( $proxy, "MOCPROXY04", $username, $password ); $mech->get( $url ); $mech->get( $url, @args ); my $response = $mech->response(); for my $key ( $response->header_field_names() ) { print $key, ":", $response->header( $key ), "\n"; }

Here's the compilation result:

Error GETing Proxy Authentication Required ( The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy service is denied. ) at line 22

    [Corion]: Hi marto! Indeed, Crunchy be thanked!
    choroba had a Christams party at work yesterday. Slow morning today...
    [Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
    [Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
    [Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
    [Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
    [choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
    [choroba]: beer
    [choroba]: oh ok
    [marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
