import boto
import boto.ec2
from boto.ec2.connection import EC2Connection

conn1 = EC2Connection(aws_access_key_id='user-
name',aws_secret_access_key='password')
# this is user-name with which i login to Amazon Console
print conn1
# This prints: ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
regions = conn1.get_all_regions()
print regions

But while get_all_regions fails with below error: raise
self.ResponseError(response.status, response.reason, body)
boto.exception.EC2ResponseError: EC2ResponseError: 401 Unauthorized
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Response><Errors><Error><Code>AuthFailure</Code><Message>AWS was not able to
validate the provided access credentials</
Message></Error></Errors><RequestID>a83e822a-6150-44f3-9b4c-
f8f513563e98</RequestID></Response>


Can you please help?

Use access and secret access key instead of username and password of ec2 web console
