There are two things happening here. One of them in a bug. The other might 
not be, but almost certainly isn't "grave":

1) libmms is returning "libmms connection error"

libmms apparently couldn't connect to that URL, and said as much 
("connection error"). I couldn't say why, but I doubt this is a grave bug 
unless libmms doesn't work with ANY mms URL, which I know isn't the case for 
me or most users.

2) mimms is printing it out with a deprecated python interface.

The deprecation problem is a bug in mimms (written in python), not libmms 
(written in C). It results in a warning message, and has nothing to do with 
mimms not working. This is a normal bug and should be fixed to eliminate the 
warning message, but is not severity "grave".
