I just tested your script and it is working fine with me[I just changed the quote char]. Kindly make sure that the Odoo server is running ...

[Just to make sure, did you put common.version() after print keyword : print common.version()]

I run your code and you have an error at this line:

common = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy(‘{}/xmlrpc/2/common’.format(url))

because of the use of non string characters ‘’

it should be:

common = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('{}/xmlrpc/2/common'.format(url))

solved then? could you accept the answer on the check mark?
