Test HTTP proxies - checks include timeouts, warning for slow times, expected comment and proxy authentication
Check HTTP Proxies - including:

* time of response (timeout and warning in the more recent python version, just warning in the older)
* http proxy and port with or without authentication
* expected content for a given URL

In all places I've endeavoured to capture the errors that might occur and return them in a way that will produce useful information within Nagios.

Note for pre-2.6 python there is a back-ported version of this script:
