You don't say if you are running on Windows or not but this is a ssh
wrapper I use that uses the pexpect library...:
PROMPT = "\$|\%|\>"
def __init__(self, user, password, host):
self.child = pexpect.spawn("ssh %s@%s"%(user, host))
i = self.child.expect(['assword:', r"yes/no"], timeout=120)
def command(self, command):
"""send a command and return the response"""
response = self.child.before
"""close the connection"""
password = getpass.getpass("Password: ")
ssh = SSH("RemoteUsername", password, "RemoteHost")
