Subject: [Boost-testing] proxy issues with downloading regression scripts

I seem to have trouble in downloading the regression scripts.
My earlier thread on this issue is

I have copied in my directory and invoke the script as follows:
python --runner=oracle --toolsets=sun --tag=develop --proxy= --bjam-toolset=sun --pjl-toolset=sun "--bjam-options=-j16"

The error message I see is:
# Running regressions in /net/pontus/export/users/akumta/boost_proxy...
# Creating regression scripts at /net/pontus/export/users/akumta/boost_proxy/boost_regression_src...
# Downloading regression scripts from
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 70, in <module>
    from regression import runner
  File "/net/pontus/export/users/akumta/boost_proxy/boost_regression_src/", line 1
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

In boost_regression_src directory, I have 3 files downloaded. They all have the same file size and when I view in the browser,
I see
Handshake failed
The SSL handshake could not be performed.

*Host: *
*Reason: *Can't initialize server context

I am able view the scripts in the browser

I checked with the IT folks and they mention if we can view the files(,, etc) in the browser, I shouldn't have a problem downloading it.

I am running on Solaris 11.2.
My python version is 2.6.8 which is the default version installed on Solaris 11.2

I googled the proxy issue and have set
http_proxy, https_proxy and all_proxy variable in my startup scripts.

For now, I am testing using --skip-script-download, but would like to switch to the *real* stuff.

Any suggestions?
