Hi, Iam trying to post a form with cookies using Requests module.
When I post the form and see the page with the results, there is an error in the page, saying that I didnt fill one field right. Iam absolute sure I fill that field right. When I post the data with web browser, its all right.
I think it must be cookie problem, becose when I disable the cookies in the browser and post the right data, it shows the exact same error when I send it via Python.

There is the code:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import urllib, urllib2
import cookielib
import requests

adress= 'http://....'
param= {
    'name' : '....',
    'email' : '....',
    'phone' : '....',
    'message' : '....'}#etc... 

headers = {
      'User-Agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0.1',
      'Connection': 'keep-alive',
      'Accept-Language': 'en-us,en;q=0.5',
      'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate',
      'Accept': 'text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8' }

requestp = c.get(adress)
cookiesp = dict(PHPSESSID=SSID)
request = c.post(adress, data=param, headers=headers)

print request.headers          #headers of the result webpage
print request.request.headers  #headers posted
