Unable to make connection between JIRA and Python

I'm trying to connect to Jira using python, but my python applications gets stopped after running for almost 1-2 minutes long. Basically it shows: "python.exe has stopped working"

My code is as below:

#import libraries
from jira import JIRA    
from jira.exceptions import JIRAError    
import sys    
options = {'server': ''}    

    jira = JIRA(options=options, auth=('xyz', 'xyz'))    
except JIRAError as e:    
    if e.status_code == 401:    
        print ("Login to JIRA failed. Check your username and password")    
print ("done!")    

#Please help me in order to connect using jiracli    
#Note: ignore the python indentation attached here

Dear @Ashish ,

when debugging problems, I always send the rest call from script with a REST API browser extension to verify.

Have you done this already? I could be an authentication error. It could be a Web Proxy issue. (The traffic of the browser is filtered by a company proxy - on command line request run into the void). It could be a firewall issue (tried to telnet the server?)

So long
