I am a newbie to both python and avro and have limited experience in networking.
But if I am not wrong the problem is at python client end as I am guessing you must be using s.th like
client code - attach to the server and send a message
client = ipc.HTTPTransceiver(server_addr, server_addr)
requestor = ipc.Requestor(PROTOCOL, client)
So even though you can go ahead and switch to NettyServer in java you will be limited to use httpserver because your python client uses http client
I guess the best way to get around this will be to look at source code of avro python client ipc.py file
and add a new implementation besides the one that comes out of the box.
class HTTPTransceiver(object): """ A simple HTTP-based transceiver implementation. Useful for clients but not for servers """
That said, again I am new to the whole thing so I might be totally wrong :)

However when I get my python client to talk to the java server I see this error:
