    Hello,

    My company has recently started using a proxy (which I can see set in the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog.

    Now, when I try and proxy my traffic through Fiddler from the urllib2 python library it does not get captured by Fiddler.  However, when I turn the Windows proxy off the traffic does get captured by Fiddler.

    Does any body have an idea about why this would be?  Is there some contention between the way that Windows proxies traffic and the way Fiddler proxies traffic?

    Thanks,

    Douglas.

    I think this might have something to do with the python library I'm using.

    https://docs.python.org/2/library/urllib2.html#urllib2.ProxyHandler states that urllib2 picks up the proxy settings from Internet Settings under certain circumstances.

    Thanks!
