Hi, I am trying to post to /xml-api/listacct? but it keep receiving an http 403 and I am never presented with a 401. Also, what are the differences between 2082/2083 and 2086/2087 I see among the pairs themselves the lower numbered one is non-ssl, but between the two groups I don't know the difference. Here is my code in Python: I am trying to post some data to a form using urllib2, but instead of being presented with a 401 and then sending my credentials I am constantly being present with an HTTP 403. For some reason doesn't seem like the auth header is even being sent and the user-agent header is sent after connection-close http header... >>> print platform.python_version() 2.6.5 Here is what happens according to python (also corroborated on the server side as well, just incase). I'm also not sure the header order is exactly a problem, but I'm 95% sure. Sample run: $ ./cptest send: 'POST /xml-api/listaccts? HTTP/1.1\r\nAccept-Encoding: identity\r\nContent-Length: 13\r\nHost: servername:2082\r\nContent-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\nConnection: close\r\nUser-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv,188.8.131.52) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13\r\n\r\n' send: 'domain=anjopa' reply: 'HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden\r\n' header: Connection: close header: Server: cpsrvd/184.108.40.206 header: Content-type: text/xml Traceback (most recent call last): File "./cptest", line 61, in <module> queryCpanel() File "./cptest", line 55, in queryCpanel response = opener.open(url, paramaters) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 397, in open response = meth(req, response) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 510, in http_response 'http', request, response, code, msg, hdrs) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 435, in error return self._call_chain(*args) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 369, in _call_chain result = func(*args) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 518, in http_error_default raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp) urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden #!/usr/bin/python import sys from xml.dom.minidom import parse, parseString import urllib import urllib2 import base64 from cookielib import CookieJar # Turn on HTTP debugging 11.5.
