Project Description

A Python xmlrpc client library with proxy and timeout support.


$ pip install xmlrpclibex


$ python install


  • A basic example
from xmlrpclibex import xmlrpclibex
sp = xmlrpclibex.ServerProxy(uri, timeout=30,
                        'host': 'your proxy address',
                        'port': 'your proxy port',
                        'is_socks': True,
                        'socks_type': 'v5'
  • The timeout and proxy parameters

    This module subclasses the ServerProxy class from the xmlrpclib module (or the xmlrpc.client module in case of Python3), and adds two parameters timeout and proxy.

    • timeout: seconds waiting for the socket operations.
    • proxy: a dict specifies the proxy settings (supports HTTP proxy and socks proxy). The dict supports the following keys:
      • host: the address of the proxy server (IP or DNS)
      • port: the port of the proxy server. default: 8080 for http proxy, and 1080 for socks proxy
      • username: username to authenticate to the server. default None
      • password: password to authenticate to the server, only relevant when username is set. default None
      • is_socks: whether the proxy is a socks proxy, default False
      • socks_type: string, ‘v4’, ‘v5’, ‘http’ (http connect tunnel), only relevant when is_socks is True. default ‘v5’


  • Sometimes, access HTTPS over HTTP Proxy (through CONNECT tunnel) may report errors, recommend using SOCKS proxy.
