Help with socket.gaiaerror: (11001, 'getaddrinfo failed')

Hello sir,

I'm a novice in python programming. This day, I have an exploit code which I found it at hack websites. It's a python code.

I try to install everything needed to compile python code. Everything seems to be okay, until I'm stuck while I compile the .exe code.

The error was like this :

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 179, in (module)
File "', line 143, in __init__
File "', line 155, in GetSesc
File "', line 866, in request
File "', line 889, in _send_request
File "', line 860, in endheaders
File "', line 732, in _send_output
File "', line 699, in send
File "', line 667, in connect
socket.gaiaerror: (11001, 'getaddrinfo failed')

I'm using proxy server to connect to the internet, my computer was connected with in LAN network at campus. I can not figure out how to solve this problem since I'm novice in python programming.

Is it related with firewall ??
I didn't use any firewall from other vendors or from my Win XP itself (I have turned it off), and I also have made exception for 'exploit.exe' in order to be running through firewall.

So how do I run this code behind proxy server ??
Is there any configuration I have to set/change ?

Please I really need help on this.

I'll be appreciate for any one who want to share their knowledge here.
Thanks in advance. :)
