Getting Started with the PySocks library

    Table of contents

    You can use the PySocks library to connect to your QuotaGuard Static SOCKS5 proxy as shown here.

    This code sample will print out one of your two static IP addresses by sending an HTTP request to the HTTP Bin service.

    import socks
    from urlparse import urlparse
    import os
    # Extract proxy connection details from env variable
    proxy = urlparse(os.environ['QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL'])
    s = socks.socksocket()
    s.set_proxy(socks.SOCKS5, proxy.hostname, 1080, True, proxy.username,proxy.password)
    host = ""
    s.connect((host, 80))
    request = "GET /ip HTTP/1.1\nHost: "+host+"\nUser-Agent:Mozilla 5.0\n\n"
    response = s.recv(1024)
    print response
