Fix Bug in Python Script - urllib3 & Windows Proxy

Job Description:

OS: Windows 11

IDE: Pycharm

Python Version: 3.7

Proxy Type: Native Windows Proxy

Proxy IP/Port: [login to view URL]

When running the script in Pycharm I'm getting the below error.


[login to view URL]: [SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:1076)

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

[login to view URL]: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='[login to view URL]', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /something/[login to view URL] (Caused by ProxyError('Your proxy appears to only use HTTP and not HTTPS, try changing your proxy URL to be HTTP. See: [login to view URL]', SSLError(SSLError(1, '[SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:1076)'))))


I found 3 solutions on Google:

(a) Remove proxy. Unfortunately, that's not an option for me.

(b) change [login to view URL] from https to http. This is also not a good idea.

(c) Downgrade liburl3 from 1.26.14 to 1.23. I tried but this did not solve the problem.

I need someone to fix this bug.

IMP: I need someone to connect remotely to my laptop & fix the issue. I'll not be able to share the code.

Budget: $20
