How to Install Netmiko & Paramiko in Windows 10 using PIP
What is PIP?
PIP is a package manager for Python. That means it’s a tool that allows you to install and manage additional libraries and dependencies that are not distributed as part of the standard library.
Why was Netmiko created?
The creator of Netmiko had observed that many individuals encountering similar issues with Python-SSH and network devices. For example, HP ProCurve switches have ANSI escape codes in the output or the Cisco WLC has an extra ‘login as:’ message. These types of issues can soak up a lot of development and troubleshooting time and, what is worse, people keep solving the same issues over and over again (including sometimes not solving them and giving up).
So Netmiko was created to simplify this lower-level SSH management across a wide set of networking vendors and platforms.
