You can use this functions like this.
<pre>if __name__ == '__main__':
    from sys import argv
    opts, rest = getopt(argv[1:], 'p:h:')
    opts = dict(opts)
    if len(rest) == 0:
        passwd = opts.get('-p', 'admin')
        host = opts.get('-h', '')
            disconnect(host, passwd)
            connect(host, passwd)
        except urllib2.HTTPError, e:
            if e.code == 401:
                print 'wrong password'
                print 'Error: %s' % e.args
        except urllib2.URLError, e:
            print 'Error: %s' % ' '.join(e.args)
            print "password successfuly changed"
