Using Python and SSH to Program a Cisco Switch

In this video, David Bombal responds to viewers' request for a demonstration of using Secure Shell (SSH) with Python to program Cisco devices in GNS3. He shows you how to use Paramiko, a Python implementation of SSH version 2, to configure a Cisco switch. This video is one in a series produced by Bombal on network programmability using Python and GNS3. In his next post, Bombal will demonstrate Netmiko, an open source library that provides an easier way to configure switches using SSH.
