Gangabass has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How to tell WWW::Mechanize to work with HTTPS proxy? I have this code:
use WWW::Mechanize; print "WWW::Mechanize: ", $WWW::Mechanize::VERSION, "\n"; print "LWP : ", $LWP::UserAgent::VERSION, "\n"; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->proxy( [ 'http', 'https' ], "https://204.228.129.46:8080/" ); $mech->add_handler("request_send", sub { shift->dump; return }); $mech->add_handler("response_done", sub { shift->dump; return }); $mech->get("http://people.iu.edu/");
and below is result I have:
WWW::Mechanize: 1.73 LWP : 6.06 GET http://people.iu.edu/ Accept-Encoding: gzip User-Agent: WWW-Mechanize/1.73 (no content) 500 Can't connect to 204.228.129.46:8080 Content-Type: text/plain Client-Date: Sat, 31 May 2014 02:26:15 GMT Client-Warning: Internal response Can't connect to 204.228.129.46:8080\n LWP::Protocol::https::Socket: SSL connect attempt failed with unknown +error SSL wants a read first at c:/Perl/site/lib/LWP/Protocol/http.pm + line 41.\n Error GETing http://people.iu.edu/: Can't connect to 204.228.129.46:80 +80
If the proxy is HTTP based I have no errors...t connect to 204.228.129.46:8080 Content-Type: text/plain Client-Date: Sat, 31 May 2014 02:26:15 GMT Client-Warning: Internal response Can

    Just for reference, because I've answered the question already on Stackoverflow:
    • with LWP::UserAgent 6.06 and LWP::Protocol::https 6.06 proxy support for https should work out of the box as documented, e.g. by setting proxy with proxy method or reading it from environment with env_proxy method
    • for version 6.05 it might work out of the box if you use Debian or derivates, because they've patched it already in 12/2013
    • for versions older than 6.06 Net::SSLGlue::LWP provides the necessary monkey patching
