Thanks for the new code! I just had to change:

print SOCKET "Authorization: Basic $auth\n" if ($password);


print SOCKET "Proxy-Authorization: Basic $auth\n" if ($password);

to get it through the authentication. It still grabs the first set of
keys from the server but then gets "Empty or bad TCP request" when it
tries to return the results. I'll have to mess around a bit in debug mode
and see if I can track anything down.
