How are you generating your HTTP requests? httplib or urllib? IN
either case, you ought to be able to get Python to print out some
debugging information, which will be much more useful than doing
something with a packet capture tool. There's nothing fancy going on
at the packet level that you need to look at -- just the data that's
coming back over the socket. One of the easiest ways to do that is
with the set_debuglevel method on an HTTP object.
But your question probably has an even easier answer: What kind of
authentication is the server doing? Python supports HTTP Basic
authentication with urllib, and I've gotting a working implementation
of Digest authentication that should be ready for release any day now.
The authentication support is not well documented (if it's documented
at all), so you'll have to look at the code.
