i wrote a python prog that reads a url via urlib to find out the public ip
of the computer, my problem is that, if someone sets a proxy in teh internet
explorer, the urllib works also over a proxy and i dont get the right public
ip of my computer?

has sombody an idea, how to disable this behavior of the urllib?
